“A child having repressed pent up feelings of sadness and a censored edict to not open up, leads to severe depression and an inability to experience love and life’s intimacy. Colleen Aynn’s ‘Sad Sally’ is a beautiful highly relatable tool for any psychologist, or child/youth worker to alleviate such suffering in children they’re entrusted to treat. A must arrow in your therapeutic quiver!”

Dealing with Feelings Brings Kids to a Healthier Place!

If children (and adults!) were meant to suppress their emotions …they wouldn’t have been born with them!

Think about it. We didn’t come into this world with our emotions so we could hide them. We came into this world so we could live through them.

Today, you have a FUN and REFRESHING chance to teach your children to identify and 
channel their emotions in a responsible and constructive way!’s Ok to show your feelings.

In her heartwarming Feeling Friends books, author Colleen Aynn, uses rhymes and colorful illustrations to teach children it’s Ok to cry and show emotions.

You’ll follow the story of Sad Sally, who is always sad …and won’t allow herself to have a good cry. That is, until she meets an old toad in the middle of the road.

The lesson Sally learns from the toad is it’s Ok to cry and show her feelings. Children will learn …

…When they allow themselves to act on their heartfelt emotions, their body and soul 
will naturally recalibrate – and move them to a healthier place.
“With a simple and heart-warming story, Sad Sally reminds all of us, young and old, of the importance of accepting our emotions and staying true to ourselves and to our feelings. Wonderful story with a great moral.”
