A book for times when you have a bad surprise, a good surprise or a surprise that feels so big it is as if you'd been turned upside down.
My Feelings is a beautifully expressive but playful series looking at the most common, everyday feelings that young children have but often don't know how to channel or express. The first-person accounts of everyday situations that take place in a small child's life make this series appealing, and the clever use of background imagery, illustrative details and small speech bubbles make it unique and fun!
When I'm Surprised looks at good and bad everyday surprises that children encounter such as finding a spider in the bath, getting a present or hearing a loud noise , then goes on to suggest ways to channel the emotion through activities and discussion.
Each title has an interactive Do It! spread and teacher/parent's notes at the back of the book which get children imagining or role-playing situations - an excellent 'way in' to parental, one-to-one, group or class discussion. There are also further activities to try and examples of further reading.
