Aroha’s Way is a beautiful, descriptive and relatable book – an important book – helping children to normalise, understand and evennd and even develop their own tools for dealing with their feelings.
At the back of the book, there is a section for parents and/or teachers to explore the tools in more depth. Asking questions around those emotions to make it easier for children to recognise the emotion, and then a simple way to manage it.
