It’s Ok to Feel the Way You Do

Winner ABIA Small Publisher Children’s Book of the Year 2018

“My son Oliver received this book as a gift from the ever so lovely Arianna Lomax. To say this has made a dramatic impact on his life would be an understatement. He’s been through a lot in his first 5 years of life and that left me with a little boy who had extreme separation anxiety, anger outbursts, and a general unease. We’ve read this book more times then I can count. It’s opened up an incredible dialogue between the two of us, things I didn’t realise even had an impact on him I learnt did. By opening up this dialogue he no longer has separation anxiety, his outbursts are less and he has tools to deal with his anger. It is now my go to gift for every child over 3. It changed mine and my little dudes life. Thank you ❤️❤️”
