NBTM Virtual Book Tour + Review + #Giveaway: It's Ok to Have Feelings by Aileen Pound and Michaela Robertson Keane @GoddessFish


It's OK to Have Feelings

by Aileen Pound and Michaela Robertson Keane

GENRE: Children's


It's OK to have feelings.

Everyone has feelings. Happy, sad, and angry are feelings we all have felt at one time or another. As you grow up, you start to feel other feelings. Can you guess what some of them might be?

What happens to our bodies when we start to feel these feelings? When you're happy, you feel like the sky is blue, the sun is out and you can see unicorns and rainbows. Your smile is bigger, and your eyes have a sparkle in them. What happens to your body when it's a feeling you've never felt before?

Come along and join in with all the other children learning how to identify feelings and what happens to their bodies when they feel those feelings.

Remember, it's OK to have feelings!


Have you ever felt scared ? Perhaps you’ve seen

something scary on T.V. Maybe you have to go to the

doctor’s office for an injection you know is going to hurt.

It’s not nice to feel scared, is it? Your body tenses,

your heart races, and your eyes widen like saucers.

Just remember, though...

It’s OK to have feelings; this feeling of being

scared will pass (and usually rather quickly).

Have you ever been talking to a friend and they just won’t listen?

Has someone ever kept following you in the playground even when

you’ve asked them to stop? You start to glare, your voice becomes

gruff, and your face becomes warm. You are feeling angry .

Just remember, though...

It’s OK to have feelings. It’s ok to feel angry. In fact, it’s

normal to have this feeling. Your anger will go away.

Tomorrow is another day.

My Review:

It's Ok to Have Feelings is a children’s storybook that teaches children all about feelings. It teaches them how feelings make you feel, emotionally and physically. It's Ok to Have Feelings teaches children that it is ok to have feelings and feel them. We all have the same feelings.

I loved the illustrations as they were all so beautiful and bright even when the feelings were not. I especially loved the unicorns and their reference to feelings. I believe children can learn so much from reading It's Ok to Have Feelings with a parent. No matter the age. Children are listening even when we think they are not.

The pictures/illustrations were a perfect match to the storyline, they help to make the story come alive in your mind.

I would recommend It's Ok to Have Feelings to any child no matter the age, young and old alike. It's Ok to Have Feelings is a great story for all ages. I am an old lady myself and I truly enjoyed reading It's Ok to Have Feelings.

I have been enjoying reading a lot of children’s books in my old age. As they say, there is a child inside all of us. I remember the child I once was. She is always lurking somewhere in the back of my mind peering over my shoulder.

Now is the time for you to one-click your copy of this little gem, It's Ok to Have Feelings today! 

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

Aileen Pound and Michaela Robertson Keane are a mother and daughter team.

Michaela, who is six, is Aileen's only child, and they spend a lot of time doing lots of fun things together: going on adventures, creating and being imaginative at home. So last year, when they were housebound during COVID, they started talking a lot about feelings, especially ones that Michaela had never felt before. So they decided to write a book together to help other children with their feelings.

Aileen and Michaela spent a long time talking about what feelings to put in the book, and Michaela provided Aileen all the examples that are in the book. As with everything, they wrote this book together, and Michaela had a very clear image of how she wanted the illustrations to look.
