I take my hat off to picture book authors who have the emotional intelligence and skill to take difficult topics and distil them in such a way that young children can understand them.

These superb books are a fantastic example of this, helping children to explore and better understand their emotions, as well as offering suggestions as to how they might manage big feelings. Beautifully illustrated, both books pack a huge punch and I love the fact that even the endpapers play an important role in encouraging discussion. While the books might be aimed at young children, I defy readers of any age not to take something away from them.
