Meet a boy with feelings so big that they glow from his cheeks, spill out of his eyes, and jump up and down on his chest. When a loud truck drives by, he cries. When he hears a joke, he bursts with joy. When his loved ones are having a hard day, he feels their emotions as if they were his own. The boy tries to cope by stuffing down his feelings, but with a little help and artistic inspiration, the boy realizes his feelings are something to be celebrated. Written by debut picture book author Britney Winn Lee and boldly illustrated by Jacob Souva, The Boy with Big, Big Feelings is relatable for any child, but especially for children experiencing anxiety and extreme emotions, or who have been diagnosed with autism or as a Highly Sensitive Person.

The Boy with Big, Big Feelings

From The Boy with Big, Big Feelings Parent Guide by Britney Winn Lee

It is an honor to be the caregivers and stewards of little bodies that house such big hearts! Sensitive children grow up to be empathizers with the world—and they remind us to press into the highs and lows of the moment and to make space for both deep joy and deep grief. It can be overwhelming, however, to guide and raise a highly sensitive child, especially for adults who may not so easily relate to such sensitivity. Here are six suggestions for nurturing kids with big feelings.

Celebrate Sensitivity

Rehearse Transitions

Give Language

Stay Steady

Maintain Boundaries

Discuss Your Feelings Too
