"A book essentially about emotions, its narrative follows a dog, Roxy, and its adventures with family and friends. With each chapter representing a specific
emotion set in an engaging scenario that a child can relate, the book aims to educate children on various feelings and how they can be managed. Throughout the chapters, specific
words are highlighted and these are associated with various emotions felt by different characters. The meaning of the words is found in a glossary at the back of the book.
While reading the book to my daughter, we were able to discuss Roxy’s and the other character’s reaction to different situations and circumstances. The questions from the guide initiated the
start of many conversations regarding emotional wellbeing, which I wouldn’t have otherwise had with my 9-year-old daughter.
This book is a good opportunity to delve into the complexities of feelings and emotions in a way which isn’t intrusive to children."
