Saranac Lake: Book Launch "Everybody Has Feelings"


Saranac Lake guidance counselor Jennifer Tissot has authored a book called “Everyone Has Feelings, A Book About Emotions For Young Children” with photography from middle-school teacher and professional photographer Karen Miemis

The 20-page paperback book is simple in design with expressive photos of children demonstrating an array of emotions. Local kids fill the pages, expressing their best (and sometime worst) feelings from being happy to mad and everything in between. Jennifer gets right to the point, letting kids know “everyone has feelings” in a non-rhyming way. 

She transitions from what emotions are to how kids can change their feelings. Written as a tool to help teachers and parents, “Everyone Has Feelings” gives adults plenty of room to start a conversation about emotions with their young children.

Jen and Karen will be at a book launch/book signing Saturday, December 8 at the Left Bank Café. Some of the children from the book may be there to show off their page of emotions and a reading is planned.

Grateful Day Press, age range 3-7, Price $10.75. Ordering information can be reached by emailing gratefuldaypress@gmail.com.
