The second book in the All About Me series, Me and My Feelings, explores a crucial part of what makes us human. Understanding our emotions can help us to become successful and healthy adults, yet they often operate beneath our awareness. Me and My Feelings explains our emotions and how they affect our mood, thinking, and behavior. Reading it, young people will discover all that scientists and researchers know, and also explore questions yet to be answered.

Written in a clear and accessible style by high school English teacher Robert Guarino (who is also the author of the first book in the series, Me and My Memory), the book is illustrated by Jeff Jackson with an engaging cast of teen characters to help illustrate the emotions and actions covered in the book.

Readers will learn the difference between the five primary emotions – anger, fear, sadness, happiness, and disgust – and secondary emotions such as pride, envy, contempt, and jealousy. They’ll find out how to interpret emotions, and also discover strategies for managing them.

Illustrative quotes from real-life teens, as well as simple activities the reader can do to relate to the concepts presented, make Me and My Feelings come alive for young people. Also included are suggested activities for teachers to use in the classroom. Me and My Feelings can be used to supplement a high school psychology course, or as a stand-alone unit in grades 8 through 12.

Available from Amazon in paperback and Kindle.
