A brilliant idea for a book. Wonderful 'alien/creature' illustrations that truly show the emotions in their faces and posture. Children will relate to this book and it will definitely help them to understand that all emotions - positive and negative - are all okay. All primary schools should have at least one copy of 'That's Okay'.

In all, this is a helpful tool for introducing children to lots of different emotions, explaining what they feel and might look like as well as emphasising that emotions are all part of being human and feeling (or not feeling them) in any particular moment is okay.
‘That’s Okay’ by Chris Dixon is a picture book that focuses on children’s mental health with the aim to help young readers learn more about their emotions - and that it’s okay to have them. With the use of bright illustrations of different colourful creatures, the author introduces each emotion and includes things you might want to do when you’re experiencing that feeling (when you’re happy you might want to sing and smile for example).
