Out today - the fabulous "All About Feelings" by Felicity Brooks, Frankie Allen and Mar Ferrero (Usborne Publishing)

Usborne's superb "All About" range gets a new book today, with a subject that's becoming more and more important in children's literature with the passing of every year.

Children's emotional and mental health is always an important but sometimes really difficult subject to tackle and summarise in something that's both kid-friendly but gets to the grist of each important issue.

This range does it so well, and in "All About Feelings" by Felicity Brooks, Frankie Allen and Mar Ferrero there are tons of different subjects covered, ranging from what makes us happy and sad, to how it feels when things start to go wrong - and what we can do about it.

Designed to help children draw out and discuss issues with parents, friends and teachers, this is a really brilliant and useful little book to have around when kids feel like they need something to lift their spirits, or just something that shows all the things they're going through aren't abnormal or horrible. Perhaps they even know someone in their immediate circle of friends and family that may be going through exactly the same thing.

Sum this book up in a sentence: Beautifully illustrated throughout, this is a fab book to have around on the shelves when it's time to discuss feelings and emotions.

"All About Feelings" by Felicity Brooks, Frankie Allen and Mar Ferrero is out today, published by Usborne (kindly supplied for review).
