What professionals say

I love the fact you’ve created something that focuses on mental health and acknowledging emotions. We need to teach our children resilience at the earliest possible age, and this covers it beautifully. The illustrations and rhyming style gives it a nice warm flow and I liked the bit at the end, which encourages feedback and coaches some good strategies.

"Love Thea and the Dizzy Waggle. I've worked for over 20 years with children suffering from grief and loss and this is the best book I've come across as a resource in my work. Looking forward to what you write next."

Leonie Murch, Birthright New Zealand, regional leader

This book is so beautiful. Today I read it with two different aged children with completely different life journeys. They had different ideas about Zozo, but all positive.

They watched intensely for Zozo's sparkles and voiced their wonderings about the feelings that caused the sparkles to be dampened or in one picture, disappear.

Then, together we used Zozo's examples to explore their own emotions in more depth. E.g. if there was a snake or lava taking over their bodies in the moments they talked of, like in the book.

Thank you for being my favourite new tool to explore feelings with the children I work with.
