When I Feel Jealous


A bear cub describes situations that make her jealous: when someone has something she wants, when someone is good at something she wants to be good at, and when someone else gets all the attention. Jealousy is a prickly, hot, horrible feeling. I don't like feeling jealous, but--everybody feels jealous sometimes. The little bear finds ways to make herself feel better--she talks to someone about how she feels and then does something pleasant--and soon the jealous feeling goes away.An author's note for parents and teachers is included.
