For children, experiencing new emotions and understanding them are two vastly different things, but poet Jessica Urlichs and illustrator Rebekah Ballagh have created an accessible and wonderous rhyming picture book about the rainbow of feelings that live in our heart that helps little ones to express their feelings.
Also a qualified counsellor, Rebekah has provided notes for parents and teachers at the back of the book to help caregivers start conversations around understanding, identifying and navigating emotions.
'We all have lots of feelings,
it's OK to let them show.
They all live in our heart
as our very own rainbow.'
"What does your body do when you're sad or angry? How do you show someone you are proud?"
Experiencing emotions and learning what they mean can be a challenge for kids. This accessible and engaging rhyming picture book will illuminate the rainbow of feelings that live in our heart.
