Illustrated by Lisa Allen.
Cheeky Dragon is a partnership between author Rose Stanley and illustrator Lisa Allen.
From whatbooknext.com – “We all feel emotions, and there are so many different ones. Some can mix up together all at the same time, and some can stay with us for a long time.
With every emotion, we feel a different way. Anger is like firecrackers, and Happiness feels like a hug. Confusion makes us feel lost, and Sadness like we’re walking in cold rain.
Emotions make us behave in different ways too, so it’s always a good thing to be able to name them, to help others understand how we are feeling.
With a different emotion portrayed on each page, Emotions in Motion clearly displays each one, and describes a feeling that might go with that emotion. A great way to talk about feelings, behaviour, and also how to understand others emotions.
Lisa Allen’s clear, colourful illustrations on plain white backgrounds help show separate emotions, in a clear way for young readers. Perfect for kindergartens, Playcentres or home libraries.”
Read an article Rose wrote for Tots to Teens magazine called “7 reasons parents want to take note of emotional intelligence“.
