Lovely idea, highly recommend -

Thought this was a fabulous idea, purchased for a 5-year-old daughter who is already using it within hours of getting home. Five-year-old girls experience extreme emotions and this is just a beautiful way of demonstrating that this is OK and giving great suggestions on how to deal with their feelings.

Some odd suggestions -

I was looking forward to having this is our house for my daughter following other reviews, but having had a read through I find some of the suggestions odd or unhelpful, for example:

Angry - 'curl up in to an ever-so-tight little ball, frown and grit your teeth.'

The definitions are spread out through the book so not too helpful if your child needs help identifying which feeling they are experiencing. It's more for working through an emotion they are already aware of. I'm back to using story time and this is going in the donate pile. Might work for someone else!

Brilliant resource -

I bought this because my grandson was finding it difficult to express his emotions - he was almost 3 at the time. He loves the book and now uses appropriate language to talk about how he is feeling. As a retired Reception teacher it's a resource I wish I'd had available. The fact that ALL emotions are deemed 'acceptable' is fantastic. The cartoons are great to help find positive ways of dealing with them - not just 'getting over it!' Also the final pages of help for parents and carers is excellent.

Simple, engaging and hopefully effective! -

My child suffers from anxiety and anger issues, and I bought this book to help her handle them. It's perfectly suited for age 5+. The first pages have a list of different emotions - happy, angry, bored, worried, sad, excited, grumpy, scared, quiet!, jealous, embarrassed, shy and a page to turn to if they are feeling one of these emotions. On the double spread for each emotion, there are 6-8 lovely simple cartoon-ish illustrations - each of these is a coping strategy eg worried: imagine yourself floating on some calm, clear water with a pic of a child imagining this. The child can read it independently and decide which one works best, this is a model that will work well for us as my child hates advise/help/lecturing on how to feel better. A winner.

Brilliant book!! -

This book is brilliant. My son is 6 and finds it difficult to express himself, particularly regarding not having his dad around. I highly recommend this book for any child struggling with expressing themselves.
