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.

A sudden problem means the Savannah friends have to change where they play. With the help of wise Lisimba the lion, Shelly and her friends learn that Shock can be very useful.

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.
