Shelly and Friends are Emotional Logic children’s story books that can be used by teachers, parents, carers and social workers as a tool to help children aged 4–9 talk constructively about their emotions.

The books explore how some of our unpleasant emotions have useful purposes that can help us to make a plan to get life moving when change, setbacks and disappointments leave us feeling stuck.

The friends decide to throw a secret birthday party for Lisimba. They all agree; but how to do it makes them all disagree! They discover that honesty sharing their emotions helps them to find a new way so they can all pull together. And they discover the joy of life, again together in the Savannah.

Emotional Logic is a conversational skill that can be learnt at any age. We believe that encouraging our young children to understand their emotions from a young age can mean that they grow up with a stronger emotional resilience in order to overcome challenges later in life.

Emotional Logic can also help children who are experiencing anxiety, depression, bullying, self-harm, low confidence, chronic fatigue, bulimia and compulsive or destructive behaviours.
