Lifeland

Kay is an experienced and respected Psychologist and Family Practitioner, member of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and The Association for Family Therapy (AFT).  She has been working in schools for the past 10 years with children and families, and is currently helping to educate children about safe ways to express their feelings using fun characters and stories.

Each book in the 'Finding Your Way' series introduces us to character struggling to understand their emotions. They each journey through 'Lifeland' - A magical place where the six BIG feelings of sadness, fear, happiness, anger, disgust and surprise are waiting to be explored. Helping them along their way are their friends and confidants and so the magical adventure begins.

Kay’s aim is to reach children everywhere to help teach them about human emotions, to understand why we have them and how to deal with them. Each book includes excellent professional guidance notes for parents, carers and teachers.

Finding Your Way Series

Welcome to the Finding Your Way series of books for children, written by author, Kay Brophy. There are six books in the series focusing on the core human emotions of sadness, fear, anger, disgust, surprise and happiness that all humans – from children right through to the elderly – experience.

Each book includes:

  • 'Lifeland' a map of the six core emotions
  • Fun characters and stories that link together across the series
  • Rhyme, to assist learning
  • Common childhood worries and concerns
  • Opportunities to debate social and cultural issues
  • Safe introductions to ‘big feelings’
  • Positive role models for expression and behaviour
  • Wisdom gained from working directly with children and families
  • Guidance notes for parents and carers

Along with helping with their emotional intelligence, reading with your child just 4 times a week can help to develop their reading and literacy skills.

Reviews

 
A story that will be enjoyed over and over again… children will enjoy the characterization of the skeleton, the quirky illustrations and the good advice about tackling big feelings by talking them through with another person. We recommend this series for helping to develop emotional literacy in a child-friendly way

 
Helping children deal with 'big feelings' can have a profoundly positive impact on their development, both academic and personal – and sharing specially chosen stories is a way of doing so that’s as gentle as it is powerful
