All feelings are good feelings!
Understand feelings, learn mindfulness, keep a journal
The mindfulness bestseller now available for kids
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.
»Children get to know and learn to listen to themselves. For all children between 6 and 11 I would definitely spill this book with a watering pot«
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.
»A book that gifts us a beautiful evening ritual.«
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.

One of the most ecological children’s books ever
A Good Feeling is bound by hand in one of the oldest printing houses (since 1593) of the world. Our whole production including transport is climate neutral. We only print on 100% recycled paper (Blue Angel). Our printing inks are made from plant oils and are free from petroleum. As we print far below the demand we avoid over production. This way no books end up in landfill. Neither does plastic foil. We never shrink-wrap our books.
