I use this book for my mindfulness for children sessions and it ties in perfectly. The children love the different monsters! I get great interaction with them and the book, they love it.


I work in a respite residential children's home with children and young people with physical and learning disabilities. They found your books very useful and helpful.They get used a lot. We have even sent some to the others homes which are mainstream children in care . Great books . Keep up the good work Chris.


Fantastic book that I brought for my 5 year old grandson who has been really struggling with his emotions. Was very easy for him to relate to the pictures. Very pleased with my purchase and would highly recommend.


Great book ,it has helped my child to understand the different emotions and that it's okay to not be okay. I would definitely recommend this book I also shared it in the class I work with it the children loved it .


Daughter absolutely loves the book, she takes it everywhere and wants to show everyone. Fantastic result for my daughter and the book. Tried searching few different sites before finding this one as most places were only selling ebooks or had a different book under the name. Very happy


I’m an ELSA in a primary school and have used this book with children that I support with different feelings. They love the pictures and can relate to the different feelings fully. I would highly recommend it.
