Reading books about emotions is an excellent way to start the conversation with kids and provide them with the tools they need to understand and manage their feelings. In this blog, we'll explore some of the best books about emotions for 8-year-olds and why they're worth adding to your reading list.

The book provides a lighthearted way to start a conversation with kids about emotions and encourages them to share their own feelings.

  6.  "That's Okay" by Chris Dixon - I am slightly biased here being the author of the book. But the reviews speak for themselves! So I had to go for the shameless plug
