It’s ok to feel the way you do otherwise you wouldn’t be you

By Josh Langley

Publisher Big Sky Publishing

Everyone has feelings … sometimes we just don’t know what to do with them!

Happy, sad, lonely, angry, anxious, proud, scared – they’re all feelings and emotions and they’re all OK! Yes – every single one of them!

In this bright and heartening book, Josh Langley helps kids get to know and make friends with their feelings.

Bursting with simple and effective ways that kids can notice and handle difficult emotions like anger, anxiety, and loss and also rejoice in the positive feelings such as joy, empathy and happiness, this is a little book with a big message.

It’s Ok to Feel the Way You Do empowers kids to understand and share their feelings so they can enjoy life a whole lot more.

Phillip was enthralled with this and I was surprised as it was a lot to take in for a 5 year old. But he told me about breathing in when you feel mad and the mad feelings float away when you breath out, so you don’t feel mad anymore. To telling me its ok to cry everybody cries

This is a truly wonderful book that opens up the dialogue with children about feelings and why its ok to Feel.

With direct, simple vocabulary, humour and gorgeous illustrations Josh Langley explains different feelings and reassures kids that its ok to feel them, giving examples on how to deal with them in a subtle reassuring way.

One of the best books I have read about feelings and it opened up some wonderful conversations  between myself and my son whilst reading. I recommend it to anyone especially kids who struggle to deal with their feelings it will be a permanent  addition to our reading library.
