Let it Go
Let It Go encourages children to explore what emotions feel like in their body and find a unique way to release them. Join Aroha and her friends as they navigate their way through four emotions: sadness, anger, shame and fear.
Following on from the huge success of Aroha's Way, Aroha and her friends are again showing tamariki they are not alone in feeling uncomfortable emotions and empowering them with strategies to manage those feelings when they arise.
In the back of the book, there are extra notes the authors hope will again open up conversations between adults and children. Learning to label emotions, recognise how they feel in the body and ways we can allow those emotions to be let go are all valuable tools for our tamariki.
