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.

It’s the annual Savannah Carnival parade. But Ollie the ostrich has a problem getting there … and he doesn’t want to think about it! Wise Lisimba the lion helps Ollie and all the friends to see that Denial, until the time is right, can be very helpful.

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.
