The second book in Hoopoe’s “All About Me” series, Me and My Feelings, explores a crucial part of what makes us human: our emotions. What are they? How and why do they work the way they do? How can we manage them when we need to?
Understanding our emotions can help us to become successful and healthy, yet they often operate beneath our awareness. Me and My Feelings explains our emotions and how they affect our mood, thinking and behavior. Readers will discover everything that scientists and researchers know about human emotions.
This is important, because once we understand emotions, we find them not only easier to manage in ourselves, but easier to understand in others.
Written in a clear and accessible style by high-school teacher Robert Guarino, the book includes many hands-on activities and experiments that are fun and instructive and will help to reinforce these new ideas, which artist Jeff Jackson has illustrated with an engaging cast of teen comic characters. 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 will 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 standalone unit in grades 8 through 12. This new edition of the book has been revised to incorporate the latest research findings and meet the American Psychological Association’s National Standards for Psychology at the high-school level, the College Board AP Psychology standards and the National Board Standards for Science/Adolescence and Young Adulthood.
