Helping your child to understand their emotions and what emotions are from a young age is imperative to the healthy development of emotional intelligence. These skills can be introduced from as early as 3 years of age.  

Often times parents do not take the time to teach this vital skill to their child, which results in a child not being able to effectively understand or express themselves.

The Happy Yosh Book by Pauline Gerson is an easy and interactive book targeted for children between the ages of 3 and 7 years.  It is easy to understand as well as beautifully illustrated. 

The book is aimed to allow your child to firstly understand the basic emotions such as: Sad, Happy, Scared and Angry.

Once a child is able to understand what these emotions are, you can explore further into topics such as “What makes you happy?”, “What makes you scared?”. This certainly is an easy way to open conversations and then to start adapting these into general daily life. 

A child that has a greater understanding of their emotions and how to handle them, provides a good foundation for when they get older.

We would highly recommend purchasing this book from Smart Emotions. You can do so by visiting emailing or Give them a call on 083 556 8684

The book is available in both English and Afrikaans.
