All feelings are good feelings!
Understand feelings, learn mindfulness, keep a journal
Understanding all important feelings
Most people only start occupying themselves with mindfulness, gratitude and their own feelings when there is a certain level of suffering. Wouldn’t it be great, if we learnt these important tools for mental health as children? Playfully, with curiosity and without distress? A Good Feeling can do exactly that and uses cute monsters to explain the 20 most important feelings in a child’s everyday life, without a moralising undertone and without judgement. Because this book has one main message: all feelings are good feelings! Also, the painful emotions like loneliness, sadness and shame have a function as they convey that something is missing or not right.

Two-in-one: Gratitude and Emotions Journal
When children learn from an early age to recognise and name their feelings, a mature way of dealing with all emotions – that children, in particular, experience in an unfiltered and unexpected manner – is created. After a few days, even the youngest human beings are able to distinguish them. Ticking off which of these emotion monsters have knocked on the door during the day quickly turns into a valuable routine and helps process feelings. This ritual also creates space to talk about unpleasant things. Additionally, there is space for keeping a diary and for practicing gratitude.

Motivation guaranteed: crafting fun all about feelings
After every ten days, riddles and crafting ideas bring relaxation and motivation. Search games, colouring pictures, a poster or the wonderful emotion wheel to cut out all provide for diversion and a deeper understanding of the displayed feelings. We recommend the following crafting materials: colourful pencils, a glue stick, scissors and a brass fastener. A bookmark ribbon and a fold out page complete the book.

»The sustainable production is consequently game-changing.«
One of the most ecological children’s books ever
Our entire production, including all transport routes, is climate-neutral and takes place in Germany. We only print on 100 % recycled paper. Our printing inks are made from plant oils and are free from petroleum. Our books are bound in a third-generation family business. As we print far below the demand, we avoid overproduction. This way, no books end up in landfill. Neither does plastic foil as we never shrink-wrap our books.
