In My Heart
In My Heart explores emotions such as, happiness, sadness, bravery, anger, shyness and more. Unlike other feelings books that tend to oversimplify, In My Heart lyrically explains what an emotion feels like, physically, inside. For example: “When I get really angry, my heart feels like it’s going to explode! Don’t come near me! My heart is yelling, hot and loud. This is when my heart is mad.”
‘The World Made a Rainbow’
As soon as I read this story it became one of my favourites, I even read it to Miss Godden and Mrs Brown. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Let me know what you think of it.
This story is about a little girl who, like you has to stay inside at the moment. It tells us about how she is feeling and what she does to help her feel better.
At the end of the story you could talk to your adult about how you think the little girl was feeling and maybe how you feel as well.
Two of Mrs Carpenter’s Stories
I thought you might like to know that ‘The Day the Crayons Quit’ and ‘The Day the Crayons Came Home’, are two of my favourite books. If you click on the links below you will be able to hear the stories.
One Hundred Steps – Captain Sir Tom Moore
This is another book Mrs Carpenter has enjoyed and her favourite phrase from the book is ‘You can do and be anything you want’.
Maybe, you have a favourite book you would like to tell me about, you could write me a letter, a postcard or send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org – you might have to ask an adult first.
