Ollie and the Magic Workshop is a great book for helping children to understand meaning behind challenging emotions. Imagining emotions as individual superpowers will help children greet each emotion inquisitively; asking why the emotion is being felt and how best to cope with that emotion. -- Emma Hughes, author of Striker, Slow Down! and Go Yogi!
With increasing awareness of mental health issues, the importance of identifying needs and providing support are increasingly crucial. The author has a vast range of experience of working with early years children, and shares her best practice and knowledge. -- Janet Dowling * School Library Association *
