Emotions

(En español: Emociones)

Say: ee-mo-shunz

Emotions are also called feelings - you know, like being happy or mad or scared. You feel them because of what you see, hear, remember, and do. So whether you're sad and blue or happy and excited, you can share your feelings with other people by talking about them. Be glad you can have so many different emotions because without them every day would feel the same!
