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 charming storybook helps children identify and manage feelings of anxiety, fear and uncertainty. Readers learn alongside the narrator that a head full of worries is often the result of fear, which can be felt in the body as a variety of sensations. As the narrator explores a variety of heartfelt ‘what ifs?’ from, ‘what if we don’t have food to eat?’ to ‘what if the lions lose their roar?’ the reader learns that feeling fear and the associated sensations is natural and that they can allow themselves to be with the feeling, rather than needing to resolve or overcome it.

This sensitively written and accessible storybook:

  • helps children identify and manage anxious and irrational thoughts
  • explores the connections between emotional, mental, and physical wellbeing
  • normalises feelings of fear and worry
  • encourages sharing and seeking support
  • ends with a reflection question to encourage deeper understanding

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.
