Emotions and empathy

Today I Feel Silly: And Other Moods That Make My Day - Jamie Lee Curtis, Laura Cornell

This book is great for first graders who have trouble expressing their emotions. It also helps children build empathy toward others. Who doesn't have  days where they feel silly, especially a child?? This would be a read aloud book and a discussion would follow on our different emotions and how we can respond to those emotions and how we can help others when they are feeling silly.
