Having worked therapeutically with children and families in schools for nearly 20 years, Kay identified a need for resources to help educate children about the six core human emotions of sadness, fear, happiness, surprise, anger and disgust.
She collaborated with artist Katy Boys to create a series of beautifully illustrated children’s books set in fictional Lifeland. The books follow six characters who are each struggling to understand their emotions.
The characters take the reader on a journey around Lifeland where, with help from someone they trust, the loveable characters manage to work through their emotions and find a way back to happiness hills. The Lifeland map is at the front of each book to help children visualise the characters journey.
