The Emotion Ocean: Swordfish Feels Sad, Hardback Book

The Emotion Ocean: Swordfish Feels Sad Hardback

Illustrated by David Arumi

Part of the The Emotion Ocean series



Swordfish Feels sad is a picture book that helps young children discuss their feelings and build positive relationships.

It offers a gentle introduction to the emotion of sadness and offers some ways in which to deal with it.

In the story, Swordfish is upset because her dad is going away for a while to care for a sick relative.

Swordfish learns that talking about her feelings, thinking about the future and doing things she enjoys all help her to cope with her feelings. The Emotion Ocean series of picture books for children aged 4 plus are a great way to promote discussion of feelings and emotions, help build positive relationships and boost self-esteem and good behaviour.

The series supports the Personal, Social and Emotional Development Area of Learning in the Early Years Foundation Stage, and the RSE curriculum 2020 and is also suitable for use with children in KS1 and can be used to discuss virtues and values.

The stories are accompanied by fun and humourous illustrations which really engage young children.
