This picture book aims to help children understand and express their emotions using the metaphor of weather. It begins by acknowledging that while it’s easy to talk about the weather outside, it can be hard to articulate our inner emotional states. The book explores different inner “weather” like sunny days when you feel you can do anything, foggy days when it’s hard to focus, windy grumpy days, and rainy sad or angry days. It validates that sometimes our inner weather doesn’t match the outer weather or our expected emotions. The book encourages children to share what’s going on inside with loved ones, because they also experience a range of inner weather and will understand. The colorful illustrations depict diverse children experiencing different emotions. Overall, it’s a creative way to give children language to express their complex and changing inner worlds.
