FAQ - Answering your questions 

What age range is Emotions at Play aimed at?

Emotions at Play stories and activities have been created with the 3-8 year old in mind, but are open to anyone and everyone! 

How will the stories help with emotions?

Therapeutic stories are carefully written to support children with their feelings and challenges in the most developmentally appropriate way. This works by very gently offering a mirror between the characters experience and that of the child. They are no longer alone in their struggles. In being able to identify with part of the story, the child can develop emotional literacy around their feelings and begin to recognise and name them. 

Is there guidance for parents and carers?

Each Emotions at Play story comes with information on the specific issue the book addresses, along with guidance on using the story and additional ways to help your child at home. This is accessed via a QR code inside each book, which will take you straight to the dedicated parent/carer page. 

We know how difficult parenting can be, especially when your child is going through some big feelings or brand new experiences, and we are here to help.

Do I need lots of materials for the activities?

Don't worry! Emotions at Play stories are filled with games, sensory activities, experiments and creative fun but there are no fancy ingredients to source. The focus is on materials you are likely to have around the house and things you will find in nature or your recycling pile. It is important to us that play is accessible to everyone and kind to the planet.

How do the books work?

Each book in our series is centred around a main character who is going through a new experience or big emotion. As the story unfolds, our mascot Rags is on hand to playfully offer facts, creative and sensory activities, jokes, and games along the journey. We know that for young children, learning is not possible without play, therefore it is a really vital part of helping children with their feelings. 



As a teacher, I love the concept of Emotions at Play. Let's help children to understand their emotions at the earliest opportunity and help them to be school ready.


What a fantastic idea for helping children to talk about their emotions. I can't wait for the first books to land. I think i'll collect them all!


I always recommend 1:1 playtime at home to parents , because it has so many benefits.  Emotions at Play is a wonderful way to address experiences and feelings in a developmentally appropriate way for young children.
