Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review It covers positive self-image, emotional intelligence, relationships and mindfulness, in a factual unemotional way that explains the concepts clearly and practically, aided by colourful cartoon characters who share their thoughts, giving excellent prompts to stimulate useful discussion. * Parents in Touch * With my pastoral role in school, I know that this book will be useful with many children for a variety of reasons. It will take pride of place on the shelf in my office... and will be used frequently to help reassure children and also to help them understand what is happening in their brains. * K and O: Bonkers About Books * This is a perfect book to use as a starting point for discussions with guidance for parents/carers, and its aim is to help children develop self-awareness and improve their emotional literacy. * Barbara Band, Armadillo Magazine * In this fantastically illustrated book, Molly Potter has provided a resource for parents of young children or teachers placed in the earlier years of school enabling an opportunity to start discussing the many emotional challenges people face in society. * UKEdChat *

Author's Bio

Molly Potter taught for 11 years in middle schools as a class teacher, science and PSHE coordinator. She then worked for several years as an SRE (Sex and Relationships Education) development manager, delivering teacher training and supporting primary schools in the development of their SRE programme and policy and many other aspects of PSHE. Molly now works as a teacher in a short-stay school with children that have been or are at risk of being excluded from mainstream schools - putting much of her PSHE expertise into practice. Sarah Jennings has been illustrating children's books since graduating in 2013. At a young age she discovered a love of drawing and has been scribbling and sketching ever since. Sarah enjoys combining traditional and digital techniques to create her illustrations and particularly loves designing characters. She currently lives in London and works from her home studio in the company of her very cheeky three-legged cat.
