As Small continues with her counsellor and actively begins to articulate her feelings, increasing her emotional awareness (which is very much helping her work through many issues including grief and anxiety), this little book is a very timely review.

Designed for younger children, it could just as easily fit in with any early learning situation or home circumstance. It is a very attractively presented board book with each page ‘tabbed’ by an appropriately expressive face for each feeling.

“When you feel sad…or worried…

Dance.

Have a cake daydream.

Take deep breaths.

Tell someone.

These can help you if you feel sad or worried.

It can just take time to go away.”

The illustrations are colourful and reassuring for any little person and the reading of this could open the way to some very beneficial conversation about the feelings faced by smaller humans who are often unable to articulate their inner feelings.

Highly recommended for home or school bookshelves for readers from 3 upwards.
