Children's Book Review/Giveaway-US only-E is for Emotions-Lisa Weidknecht-Ends 7/21

Monday, June 23, 2014


There is a different kind of Alphabet Book in town and it was written by one of our own. You all know Lisa Weidknecht of Planet Weidknecht? Yes she created this book for young children. Most alphabet books teach the alphabet using the standard B is for Baby-but not Lisa! Through subtly colored simplistic drawings and rhymed words the alphabet is used to help teach young children about the different emotions they themselves feel.

A is for Amused.

That’s how I feel inside
when something makes me smile,
Like a silly little poem
that makes me giggle for a while.


Whether this book is read to children or they are at the stage where they can help you read it this book will not only reinforce the learning of the alphabet but will help your child learn about the various emotions they feel but can not yet put into words. Additionally on every picture page there is an illustration of the Capital Letter if you want to help your child learn to recognize and perhaps trace the letters.

Now everyone, I am sure, knows this took me no time at all to read. I wish my grandniece lived closer-I would love to read this to her and help her to learn about all those mysterious feelings that cause her to act the way she does.

One of my lucky readers will be able to win an autographed paperback copy of this marvelous children's book (US ONLY)-just use the rafflecopter at the end of this post to enter.

This sounds like a great book for my 2 year old sister who's still learning all about the alphabet and emotions. I'm sure she would even want to attempt to read this herself. Thanks for the giveaway!

Masshole Mommy said...

That is a great book for kids. I remember I had something similar for my kids. Seeing it before them helps kids learn the difference about what they are feeling.

Lisa Weidknecht said...

Thank you so much for sharing my book!

(Terry) My Journey With Candida said...

What a really cute book this would be for my Grandkids. They are all at the age right now where they would enjoy it.... well, except for the two I have in college.

Diane Estrella said...

Definitely worth trying this with kids who can't express their emotions well. Cute book!

Ellen said...

What a cute idea for a book. Great way to encourage understanding how we feel.

Kristen Campbell said...

Sounds like a great book to help kids learn to express themselves properly! And how nice to be able to give away a SIGNED copy!

Miranda Sherman said...

What an amazing book! All children struggle to understand their emotions let alone to try explain them to others. This sounds like a fantastic book to not only teach the alphabet and colors but to teach children the proper wording for how they feel. What an amazing idea!

Lame Shrill Owl said...

Cool! I didn't know that Lisa had written a children's book. I will defintily check this out!

Jenn said...

What a great book! This would be great for my niece, going to pass on the info to my sister.

Danelle said...

Oh my! This would be the absolute perfect book for children with Autism, like my son. We have a magnet on the fridge where we try to teach emotions. But this would be so much better because we could look & read it together.

Thank you for sharing this!

I love that this book teaches kids socio-emotional skills. So needed! On the other hand, you could make a YouTube video reading this book to your grandniece. You can make it private!

Maria Constanza Oller said...

yes I think teaching the alphabet letter and connect or relate a letter to certain emotion makes it not only easier for the kids to learn the letter but to express emotion

Lea said...

I think this is a very innovative way of learning and say I am all for it.

(Apologies if this is a duplicate.) My 8 y/o son and I were just discussing his emotions this past weekend. He is having a hard time identifying, controlling and describing his emotions lately. This book would be a great help to him/us.

Abigail said...

I think its a lovely idea! It might help frustrated little ones have names for how they are feeling and be better able to express that

Marissa M said...

Yes I do, such a great idea!

Cryssie Cherry said...

Yes! My oldest son is 6 years old and he is very sensitive and emotional. Sometimes he reacts surprisingly and this book would greatly help his understand feelings and emotions.

Very important to teach children about emotions. Sabine B

lildevilgirl22 said...

I think it is a good way to teach while keeping young childrens attention

Melinda Stephens said...

I think this is great for someone like my son. He is obsessed with the alphabet, but has a hard time understanding and dealing with emotions. I think this would really help him.

Esperanza Garcia said...

Yes I think this is an excellent way to help children understand more about emotions! Using the alphabet that they are most likely already learning about! Literacy works!

Marnie Ward said...

I do think emotions is a great way to teach kids how to learn about the alphabet. It also teaches kids that everyone has emotions too.
