My little girl often has difficulty expressing herself. Small children often do find it difficult to understand the never-ending turmoil of all the emotions that they feel. And so when I was sent ‘The Happy Book’ from Welbeck Publishing Group, I was really pleased to have something to sit down and read and discuss with her.
See our review. And read on to find out how you can win a copy of this amazing book for yourself!
#AD – gifted – We received “The Happy Book” to review – but all opinions are our own.
The Happy Book – Our Review And Giveaway
The past few months have been stressful for all of us. But I can imagine that they have been so much more stressful to our little ones. Without a doubt, some of our little ones cannot fully process and understand everything that has happened in 2020 so far.
Indeed, it can be very difficult for some children to fully articulate their emotions. And this is where ‘The Happy Book’ is such a great idea. For example, by sitting down and reading through this book with you child it encourages those discussions about how they are feeling every day.
A Book To Explore Your Emotions
Each page has lovely illustrations going through the major emotions and how they might make you feel. From an angry boiling kettle when you are angry. To the dark and rainy page in the book when being sad is being discussed. ‘The Happy Book’ certainly puts emotions into pictures that even a small child could relate to.
There are some sections discussing the scientific aspect of emotions. And which hormones and chemicals are being released by your body when you are feeling this way.
Encourages Your Child To Talk About What Is Troubling Them
The pictures illustrate each emotion brilliantly. And there are even some practical solutions as to how to stop feeling in certain ways. Moreover, the book talks about how to recognise certain negative emotions in others, and how to respond and help.
Furthermore, ‘The Happy Book’ does recognise that it is not possible for us to feel happy all day every day.
It is such an interesting and useful book when trying to encourage your child to discuss how they are feeling. And in these strange times in which we find ourselves, that can only be a positive.
Finally, at the end of the book is a list of other helpful resources and online sites for help and advice.
This book has been written by Alex Allan and Anne Wilson. And importantly, it has also been developed in conjunction with Sarah Davies, who is a child psychologist.
We really enjoyed reading the book together. The lovely illustrations and interesting science behind how we feel kept both myself and my daughter interested. And I am sure it will be brought out again and again as my little girl grows.
