Book Description

To get the full Being With Our Feelings experience, this book can be purchased alongside the guidebook. All books can be purchased together as a set, Being With Our Feelings: Guidebook and Four Storybooks Set, 978-0-367-77231-4.

This captivating, storybook helps young people identify and explore feelings of anxiety, fear and uncertainty. As the narrator anxiously pours out a plethora of ‘What if?’ thoughts ranging from realistic to fantastical, these seemingly never-ending worries eventually build into what some readers may recognise as a panic attack. They discover that beneath the head full of worries lies the feeling of fear, and rather than resolving all the anxious questions, they can acknowledge and be with the fear itself.

Sensitively written and highly relatable to anyone who has experienced anxious thinking, What if All the Trees Blow Away?:

  • has a gender neutral central character
  • helps children recognise their anxious thoughts as fear
  • guides children on how to take back control of their anxious thinking
  • explores the connection between emotional, mental, and physical wellbeing
  • aids in normalising the feelings of fear and worry
  • encourages sharing and seeking support
  • ends with a mindful reflection, to help children explore and be with their feelings.

This storybook is essential reading for teachers, parents, or anyone working with children, who wishes to enable open conversations, exploration and expression around fear and anxiety.
