B: In chapter 9 I read about how children develop their ability to cope with feelings through modeling and playing pretend. I
think Tough Boris and the Tub people clearly address the concept of feelings, especially fear and sadness. These two
emotions are not often talked about but children really struggle to understand them so I believe reading these books to
young children could help model the important concept that all feelings are valuable. I also think reading these books might
help the adult reader to address difficult emotions in a positive way.
