learning and gaining self-knowledge.  Scientific research has 
demonstrated that even more than IQ, your emotional awareness and 
abilities to handle feelings will determine your success and happiness 
in all walks of life, including family relationships.   Yummy Me Feels 
So Good will help you and your child learn to be “Lions of Love,” to 
consciously choose and express effectively what you are feeling.  Being 
watchful and strong like the Lion brings acceptance and maturity in the 
ever changing world of feelings. Then everyone can share this "feeling 
of magic” and joy with others.”  - Harold H Bloomfield MD, N.Y. Times bestselling author

Book Description:

Yummy Me Feels So Good
isn't just another story book. It is something you can use with your
kids and grandkids for many years. Simple and childlike, kids identify
with the gentle creatures within. Absolutely beautiful, Yummy Me is a
genius way of helping children immediately connect with the world of
emotions through enchanting animal friends. The images and words are so
simple and therefore can be grasped by children and adults of all ages.
The book can easily open up space for a dialogue about emotions between
an adult and a child, all the while being playfully disguised as animal
talk. Children laugh and grimace as they flip through the pages,
mirroring the emotions they feel on the pages. Yummy Me is a great
doorway to explore the sometimes difficult arena of emotions, both for
children, teachers and parents.

Rather than labeling certain
emotions as "good" or "bad", these emotions simply get space to be as
they are, and encourage the reader to remember that they too will pass.
The final message of the book that we are in fact "none of these" me's
is a loving reminder that at any moment we can start our day again from
joy. "I have seen firsthand how taking out this book can transform a
child's tantrum into a smile and eventually bursts of laughter.

My Review
Yummy Me is an interesting children's book. It isn't so much a story as it is a guide to emotions. With easy to read words and fun illustrations to look at, kids will enjoy discovering that it's okay to feel sad, mad, happy, hungry, etc. Aimed at kids 3-8, Yummy Me will offer a simple introduction to the different types of "me" kids can be based on their emotions. The one thing I did find a little strange was that Yummy Me felt yummy. I wouldn't necessarily say that's an emotion, but I'm sure kids will find it silly. I'd recommend this book to parents of young kids/early readers.
4 stars!
