While pregnant with her first child last year, Donielle Fagan decided to write a love letter of sorts to her son with a children’s book.

Fagan, a doctoral candidate in Auburn University’s College of Education, was thinking of a way to help children learn how to deal with their emotions. With her son, Jared — who was born in June — in mind, Fagan used her skills as an experienced counselor to craft helpful messages for youths about emotions ranging from anger, sadness and joy to confusion, frustration and grief.

The result was a children’s book titled “My Feelings Are Okay,” a 24-page self-published book that aims to teach children that all the feelings they may experience are normal while providing tips for how best to deal with the varying emotions. She hopes to one day read it to her son and have him learn important lessons from the book.
