IT’S OK TO FEEL THE WAY YOU DO, OTHERWISE YOU WOULDN’T BE YOU! by Josh Langley ($14.99)
A fun a quirky book to help kids understand and accept their feelings. Happy feelings, sad feelings, angry feelings, lonely feelings and anxious feelings can all be overwhelming and it is important to have ideas on how to deal with them. For each emotion Langley shows kids how to identify it and suggests ways to help make it manageable.
The bright colours and simple text make this book ideal for 3-7 year old children who might be finding things a bit too much.
Langley offers simple techniques that even a young child can remember and use when feelings like anger or fear emerge – things like counting your breathing or talking to someone.
The most important message is that feelings make us who we are and that by making friends with our feelings we will be able to be happier and enjoy life more.
