With creativity and tenderness, Britney Winn Lee and Jacob Souva invite children and adults alike to understand the value of our emotions and why they aren't a hindrance but instead a part of what allows us to experience life with resilience and connection. --Aundi Kolber, Author, Speaker, and Trauma-Informed Therapist
The Boy with Big, Big Feelings is a story that's big enough for all of us to feel seen. Winn Lee's rhythmic text saves space for the sensitive kids whose emotions rest just beneath the skin. And in welcoming us into those quiet and confusing emotional places, the story offers connection and companionship, reminding us that 'big emotions affect ALL of us!' --Matthew C. Winner, School Librarian and host of The Children's Book Podcast
