Join Aroha and her friends as they navigate their way through four emotions: sadness, anger, shame and fear.
The Latin derivative for the word emotion, ‘emotere,’ literally means energy in motion.
Aroha and her friends are again showing children they are not alone in feeling uncomfortable emotions and empowering them with strategies to manage those feelings when they arise.
In the back of the book, we have extra notes in the hope that it will again open up conversations between adults and children. Learning to label emotions, recognise how they feel in the body and ways we can allow those emotions to be let go are all valuable tools for our tamariki.
