In collaboration with other authors and artists I aim to bring learning and fun together in the Fun with Feelings Children’s series. Through fun and lighthearted storylines, we want to help kids understand that all feelings they encounter - especially the scary ones - are valid. The series helps children identify their feelings and prepare them to communicate what they are feeling. Each book contains a space in the back for kids to draw and write out how they feel what they look like when they do.
The first book in the series, “Fearfully Brave” brings in situations about fear and how they can be overcome with bravery. One of the main lessons that has come out in the book is that of preparedness. Being ready for situations and trying things even when it scares you. Not allowing fear to stop you from moving forward but allowing it to be used as a sign of awareness.
