Using a red string as a metaphor for the energy of strong feelings, this beautifully written storybook is a journey of the physical sensations of anger as it runs through the character’s body - making them want to punch as it gets into their arms, kick and stomp as it travels down their legs and scream out hateful things as it wraps itself around their heart.

Full of relatable and easy to understand scenarios, The Red String:

  • has a gender neutral central character
  • helps children to identify powerful feelings like anger and recognise their possible effects
  • introduces the strategy of allowing the energy of strong feelings to ‘dance’ in our body, instead of letting them control our thoughts and behaviour
  • enables children to begin to accept strong feelings such as anger, without shame or judgment
  • ends with a mindful reflection, to help children explore and be with their feelings.

Strong feelings can be overwhelming and consuming. This book is essential reading for teachers, parents, or anyone working with young people who wishes to help children understand, embrace and cope with powerful feelings such as anger, in a healthy way.
