“My son Oliver received this book as a gift from the ever so lovely Arianna Lomax. To say this has made a dramatic impact on his life would be an understatement. He’s been through a lot in his first 5 years of life and that left me with a little boy who had extreme separation anxiety, anger outbursts, and a general unease. We’ve read this book more times then I can count. It’s opened up an incredible dialogue between the two of us, things I didn’t realise even had an impact on him I learnt did. By opening up this dialogue he no longer has separation anxiety, his outbursts are less and he has tools to deal with his anger. It is now my go to gift for every child over 3. It changed mine and my little dudes life. Thank you ❤️❤️”
“Josh Langley is the Todd Parr of Australian kids books.” “Josh Langley writes amazing, fresh, inspiring books.”
Following from the success of his groundbreaking kids book Being You is Enough which one reviewer called “one of the best self esteem books for kids”, Langley now uses his original style to get kids to make friends with their feelings and emotions.
Everyone has feelings … sometimes we just don’t know what to do with them!
Happy, sad, lonely, angry, anxious, proud, scared – they’re all feelings and emotions and they’re all OK! Yes – every single one of them!
In this bright and heartening book, Josh Langley helps kids get to know and make friends with their feelings.
Bursting with simple and effective ways that kids can notice and handle difficult emotions like anger, anxiety, and loss and also rejoice in the positive feelings such as joy, empathy and happiness, this is a little book with a big message.
It’s Ok to Feel the Way You Do empowers kids to understand and share their feelings so they can enjoy life a whole lot more.
