Feel A Little – little poems about big feelings – is a vibrant, approachable, enjoyable book for absolutely anyone working with, or parenting, children.
Youth mental and emotional health are still huge issues in New Zealand and as a community we need to start focussing on encouraging communication, understanding and tools around feelings from an early age. Parents, caregivers and educators need a variety of ways to encourage these conversations and the safe space of engaged reading together is a wonderful start. Rhyme and rhythm, especially combined with repetition, are excellent stimulators of participation in children and when you combine that with bright, personified characters to promote a visual language for emotions you have starting point for discussions that you can come back to again and again.
