Feelings and emotions are the colors of our inner world, painting our experiences with depth and intensity. Jaycie Harris’s When My Feelings Are Large is an engaging children's story about the emotional experiences of young readers. The author skillfully captures the thoughts and storms of emotions that confuse children. The young protagonist encounters a day that doesn't go according to plan, which leads to an unpleasant experience. From clenched fists to crying and even destructive behavior, the author shows the child's point of view very well. These situations illustrate the inner struggles when children deal with emotional overload. What sets this story apart from others is the sympathetic and understanding response of the main character's mother. Mothers provide children with comfort, approval, and a safe space to express their feelings in times of turmoil and confusion.

Through expressive language and relatable pictures, Jaycie Harris gently teaches young readers that they are not alone and there are positive ways to cope. The detailed descriptions add depth and coherence to the story, engaging young readers emotionally. It promotes open communication, understanding, and self-acceptance. The author conveys the message of love and understanding that can bring healing and understanding in stressful times. When My Feelings Are Large provides a safe and supportive environment for young readers to explore their imaginations while offering valuable lessons about the power of perseverance, self-care, and love.
