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.

Using a red string as a metaphor for the energy of strong feelings, this beautifully written storybook is a journey of the physical sensations of anger as it runs through the character’s body - making them want to punch as it gets into their arms, kick and stomp as it travels down their legs and scream out hateful things as it wraps itself around their heart.

Full of relatable and easy to understand scenarios, this book:

helps children break down the complex realities and effects of powerful feelings

offers accessible coping mechanisms for being with the energy of strong feelings and letting them move in our bodies

enables children to accept and identify their feelings without shame or judgment

ends with a reflection question to encourage deeper understanding

Strong feelings can be overwhelming and consuming. This book provides children with the tools they need to understand, explore and embrace their feelings. It is essential reading for teachers, parents, or anyone working with children who wishes to teach about allowing and accepting feelings, without the need to fix them or overcome them - to be with them, just as they are.
