This is a thoughtful and beautifully produced anthology, spotlighting a broad and diverse range of both poets and illustrators, a diversity also reflected in the vast world of feelings that this book encapsulates. From excitement to embarrassment, anger to pride, each carefully crafted poem is accompanied by immersive artwork that complements the emotion. The result is both enchanting and timely, a book which explores mental health and the emotional landscape of children in a non-didactic, age-appropriate way.
