Chinese Kids Books on Behavior and Feelings

Chinese Kids Books on Behavior and Feelings

For the first 6 years of parenting I felt like anything could set off a tantrum. Soup isn’t soupy enough, lovey is missing (again), I’m hungry but too tired to eat and too hungry to nap. And no one ever does anything mom asks, am I right? Here is a list of Chinese kids books to read with your kids to start the conversation about feelings and how they can choose to react to them and transform bad moods. There are also books about behavior, what’s right or wrong, and how to be kind.
