TITLE: Feelings From a Five Year Old
By Andria Cook

 SEND A PRIVATE COMMENT
 SEND ARTICLE TO A FRIEND

This is a picture book for ages 3-5
Alex can do many things by himself.

Alex can put the groceries away on the shelf.

Alex can put food in the refrigerator, too.

Yes, those are two things that Alex can do.

Alex can do it; he can pick up his toys,

Alex is learning when to be quiet, and when to make noise.

Alex is learning that he can be in control,

And choose the right way to let his feelings show.

Alex can use his words to tell

The things that he’s feeling, he does not have to yell.

Alex can do it, he knows what to say

When his friends are being mean or he does not want to play.

Alex uses his manners, he knows this is best

Even when he is cranky, from not getting enough rest

Alex is just learning, sometimes he does not get it right

Alex sometimes makes bad choices and forgets not to fight.

Alex can take a time out if he feels out of control

He can walk away instead of just shouting No!

Alex can set boundaries, he can say don’t go there

He can say this is mine, and I’d rather not share.

Alex can choose the right thing to do

Alex can remember “please” and “thank you”.

Alex can take a deep breath and let it out

He doesn’t have to cry, panic or shout.

We are not going to panic, we are not going to cry

We are not going to run away, we are not going to lie

We will face our feelings and be strong

And our problems will be solved before too long.

We can be responsible at just four or five

That is not too young to have rules to live by.

We all have rules that we can not break

We all have to give instead of just take.
