Parents in Touch

"<p>Emotions can sometimes be scary for younger ones. This book teaches kids aged six to ten<br>about why they feel the way they do. They will learn what basic emotions such as happy, angry, afraid and sad mean. Lots of colour, cartoons and honesty.</p>"

The Sun

"An incredibly good choice for anyone who wants to explore different feelings with a child... It's a good non-fiction book that teachers can easily use from year R to year 6, and parents can use it to talk and help their own child to understand what they, or their friends, may be feeling and why. I would definitely recommend this book for boys or girls from 5 - 12. It's bright, colourful and informative; perfect for the mental well being of a child and their adult!"


"It is excellent and I would definitely recommend it for parents with primary children... Very clear and to the point. Overall, a handy book particularly to help children face both their own and other people's complicated emotions"


"I think everyone can get something from this book children and adults"


"My children both said that this book is great, they love the bright colours, the illustrations and feel it is easy to read"


"It was very easy to give this book five stars, in fact I was instructed to by a very serious six year old! It is beautifully laid out, manageable amounts of texts and a truly wonderful book which I believe every child should have access to! I have ranted about this book to everyone I know"


"I absolutely loved this book and would use this for my child to help her understand her emotions and to explore different ways to cope with them"


"A fantastic tool for helping children understand their emotions, it is jam packed with information and great illustrations"


About My Mixed Emotions

Sometimes emotions can make your head feel all mixed up! But this super useful book, in partnership with children's mental health charity Place2Be, is here to be your friend and guide, and to help you understand what's going on inside your brain. With My Mixed Emotions you can learn how to untangle your emotions, love your feelings, and make friends with yourself.

Divided into happiness, fear, anger, and sadness, My Mixed Emotions explores the four big emotions, the reasons why you feel them, and the science behind each one. Learn how to be resilient in the best and worst times, including how to deal with bullies, grief, divorce, but also how to relax, be grateful for small things, and mindful of your emotions. Along the way you will discover more amazing things about yourself, such as why you cry when you are sad, why you sometimes feel nervous, and what happens in your brain when you are happy,

My Mixed Emotions will be your guide as you travel through the mixed-up world of emotions to discover the wonderful, unique person that you are.
