" This is a must have book for anyone with a daughter- no matter what age! It is one that will hopefully come off the bookshelf a couple times a year. Carlie had her nose buried in it for 2 days straight and really learned from it " said.

" This book helps girls to be able to recognize there feelings properly because sometime they act angry when they are sad or otherwise mixed up this just helps them to understand how mixed up their emotions can be. " said.

" This book was very enjoyable to read. It had good explanations of the different emotions that affect us and how we can identify them and best show them or deal with them. It gave very practical advice and easy to understand tasks to do and think about. It had charming illustrations on each page and an easy to read layout. I recommend it for all. " said.

" One of the American Girl series, discusses feelings coming into young adulthood. Companion to The Care & Keeping of You: The Body Book for Girls, this one deals with advice on handling the roller coaster of emotions... good advice. Having only grandsons, I wonder if there isn't something similar written for the young male experience. " said.

" "But remember," the books summarizes, "with every angry word (and with every smile) you are painting a picture of yourself..."I like the illustrations that go with each chapter. The book identifies different feelings, suggests some causes for these feelings, and lists a few solutions to try when you don't know what to do. It wouldn't be bad reading for some adults! " said.

" My mom bought me this when I first entered middle school (2 years ago). This book has useful tips about handling your emotions, and it is helpful. I recommend it to teenagers and pre-teens (GIRLS ages 11-17. this book is only meant for girls) or parents whose daughters are that age. This is a good book. It might not be something that you want to read, but you might need it. I didn't want to read it at first, because I thought it was dumb, but I eventually read it and it was helpful. " said.

"Again, a vehicle for conversation with my daughter. It worked better than anticipated. We had conversations we might not have had. I shared some of my own experiences with her, and it seemed to normalize things. It's good for children to know that adults have similar issues/feelings/challenges, as children, in their lives. She was surprised by some of the book's more extreme examples of upset and emotional situations. We converse quite easily, share a lot with each other AND this book was a way to enhance our connection, widen the field of communication." said.

"I got this book for my daughter because I've noticed her emotions are a bit more roller-coasterish than they used to be.

The book is easy to read and full of age appropriate examples of a variety of emotions. It also contains solutions and ideas for successful problem solving and managing the stress that may come with these emotions.

My daughter read The Care and Keeping of You and it has prompted many mother/daughter discussions [discussions I was afraid to have with my own mother], so I'm hopeful this book will continue the dialog. I also purchased The Care and Keeping of Us, a book for mothers and daughters designed to help their relationship through the teen years, but it hasn't arrived yet. I'm sure I'll love it, too.

I just wish they had a book series like this for boys, or at least one that was more gender neutral. Maybe they do already, I just haven't found it yet.
