Feelings and Emotions

Feelings and emotions can be very confusing and tricky, especially for young children. They may find it hard to recognise what their feelings mean and don't know how they should behave when they feel that way. Or they can bubble up all of a sudden and children can find it hard to recognise what those feelings and emotions are. Sharing stories about feelings just might help.


Families, just like people, come in all shapes and sizes. Sharing stories about different families, and families similar to ones own, can help put a child's mind at ease and show to them that no two families are alike, as well as make the child feel like they belong.

Hospitals, Doctors, Dentists and Opticians

Being taken to see a doctor for the first time can be scary, whether it's a visit to the GP, optician, dentist or to the hospital. Sharing a book about other children visiting a doctor could make the experience less worrying.
