The Owl that was Afraid of the Dark

  • This Storybox includes two beautiful board books to mark Children's Mental Health Week:


    The Owl that was Afraid of the Dark - As read by The Duchess of Cambridge on CBeebies Bedtime Story. The magical and reassuring tale about baby barn owl Plop is a beloved children's classic! Plop, the baby owl, is like every barn owl there ever was, except for one thing - he is afraid of the dark! But the dark is brimming with excitement and magic. As Plop ventures into the night, he meets a boy who shows him fireworks, a black cat who takes him exploring, a girl who tells him about Father Christmas, among other surprising discoveries .

    Filled with gentle humour and warm and soothing illustrations, The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark has been enjoyed for decades by parents and children who want to snuggle down with a good read!


    First Emotions: How Am I Feeling? : A little guide to my emotions - The characters Happiness, Anger, Sadness, and Pride are here to teach your little ones how to recognise emotions and name their feelings. This brightly illustrated board book is a gentle and simple introduction to strong emotions. It will help your pre-schooler tell you how they are feeling and understand what happens to their body when they are happy or sad.

    Cute characters, like the star for Pride and the flame for Anger, evoke the feelings that small children have experienced. They just might not have the words for it just yet. Help them understand what these emotions are and that everyone feels them sometimes.

    This charming book explains how emotions can make us act in different ways, like stamping our feet when we are angry, or jumping up and down when we are happy. It tells children what happens to their bodies, inside and out when they feel different things, and why we act the way we do. The easy language makes for a fun and educational reading time.

    This helps children with language, vocabulary, and talking about their emotions, especially if they have difficulty expressing feelings. Let the characters help your toddler answer the question "why do I feel sad?" with simple explanations. A Little Guide to My Emotions This fantastic children's feeling guide includes: - Four key emotions to learn - Easy to read text that encourages vocabulary building - Beautiful illustrations that will engage pre-schoolers.
