The Color Monster

How are you feeling today? Are you happy? Sad? Angry? Scared? Calm? Maybe you're a combination of feelings like "The Color Monster"! One day, he wakes up feeling angry, happy, calm, sad and scared all at the same time! To help him, a little girl shows him what each feeling means through color. As he learns to sort and define his mixed up emotions, he gains self-awareness and peace as a result. We teach children to identify shapes, colors, numbers, letters, etc. But we should also teach them to identify their feelings and how to handle their big emotions. Especially right now, as they are trying to figure out what is going on in the world around them and how they should handle their stress/fear and other emotions.
