I Have Monsters in My Tummy

The first step to develop emotional and social intelligence is knowing how to recognize our feelings.

I Have Monsters In My Tummy is a book that connects children and adults in the adventure of understanding and naming their emotions.

It tells the story of Marcelo, a boy who feels a lot of “things” in his tummy, but doesn’t really know what it is. The mystery is unraveled little by little, when Marcelo gets to know the little monsters that represent eight different emotions: joy, sadness, anger, fear, courage, curiosity, pride and jealousy. In a light and fun way, the book helps children to develop their social-emotional skills and reinforces the connection between adults – parents, teachers – and children.
