Happy as a Lamb



In stock

These Choose Your Mood Puzzle Books are a fun, interactive way for young children to recognise their emotions and feelings, using double-sided puzzle pieces that fit together for extra fun.

Teresa Bellón’s characters cleverly and simply visualise the moods and feelings so children can identify their own. There are cues underneath the puzzle pieces encouraging children to express positive feelings, or turn negative feelings into more positive ones, and the puzzle pieces offer parents and carers a tool to open conversations to foster good mental health through play.

Are you as HAPPY as a lamb, or as GRUMPY as a goat?

Happy as a Lamb focuses on emotions – those physical, reactive emotions, such as joy, anger, sadness, excitement and fear. Its companion Brave as a Lion focuses on feelings – such as feeling brave, shy, tired or upset. The cues encourage children to imitate an animal – jump around like a spring lamb or roar like a lion – using humour, exercise, mindfulness or breathing techniques to turn negative feelings into a more positive mindset.
