This Dealing with Feelings book about jealousy helps kids understand what they're feeling when they're upset. Now a part of the premier early reading line, Step into Reading!

When a new girl named Amy comes to school and interrupts show-and-tell, a little girl feels ignored. She doesn't want to share with Amy. When the kids play soccer, Amy scores a goal. Everyone cheers, and the girl is jealous. How does Amy feel? Can the little girl give her a chance to become a new friend?

The Dealing with Feelings series of early readers is designed to give voice to what's brewing inside. Through short, simple text and repetitive observational phrases, children will learn to name their emotions as they learn to read.

Step 2 Readers use basic vocabulary and short sentences to tell simple stories, for children who recognize familiar words and can sound out new words with help. Rhyme and rhythmic text paired with picture clues help children decode the story.
