The team behind the bestselling All Are Welcome explore the variety of feelings that children will have in the course of an ordinary day with bold illustration, diverse representation and gentle humour.
I have big feelings.
You have them too.
How can I help?
What can we do?
Follow a group of children through a day in their neighbourhood, as they play together and navigate the BIG feelings that we all experience.
What should we do when things don't go to plan? We may feel angry, frustrated or overwhelmed; we may feel hopeful, tired or even . . . inspired. No matter how we're feeling or how different we are, it's never too late to talk things through and learn to see the world from another point of view.
Warm and inspiring, this uplifting picture book helps children name and acknowledge feelings of all kinds, and learn to put themselves in others' shoes. Because whatever we're feeling, we're never alone.
