Benefits of the book
Help your child identify emotions
The book talks about common situations that can trigger certain emotions as well as how a child can feel when experiencing them. This enables the child to recognise an emotion easily.
Encourage your child to communicate
When we understand an area in enough detail, it makes it easier for us to talk about it. This is the same for children. Once they have identified their emotions, they can tell an adult how they are feeling. This means you can offer your child relatable advice.
Teach your child how they feel is normal
As adults, sometimes we can feel uncomfortable when feeling something. Our culture doesn't normalise them, so we hide them. Occasionally, we can lash out from suppressing emotions. If we normalise emotions for children, this is less likely to happen.
Expand your child's language skills
That's Okay is written in an easy to understand way, with simple words that a child can remember. This means they can learn and talk about feelings.
I would definitely recommendRead more reviews
I purchased this eBook for my 5 year old son whom is adopted and struggles to regulate his emotions.
We have looked at it twice today and he seems to really relate to the emotions in the book and it has helped him discuss them and describe how each emotion makes him feel.
I would definitely recommend to children aged 3-8 who struggle with managing their emotions

They both loved it, especially my 7 year old who related and was comforted by it straight away. A perfectly lovely book for all children.
