“Langley’s little books with BIG messages of self-help and self-esteem are a house favourite here. Neither overtly moralistic nor sermonic, they present beautiful messages of love, understanding and hope, accompanied with novel, cartoon-esque illustrations.
This one encourages kids to acknowledge their self-worth and stick by themselves, 100% of the time. It explores feelings, emotions that all kids experience but can’t always name or comprehend. Pride and anger sit side-by-side in this little compendium of inspirational explanations that allows kids to recognise and embrace ALL of their feelings and understand their source and the outcomes of experiencing them.
In the end we are all full of feelings, not all of them always welcome or pleasant but they are who we are and what makes us uniquely human, nonetheless. I love the take-home idea that if we all made friends with our feelings rather than kept on suppressing or ignoring them all the time, then we’d have much more time for fun. Brilliant!”
