In order to allow children to express, explore and cope with the emotions they feel in a similar situation, the last few pages of the book offer ideas for games, small art projects and other activities. All of these have been tested on young children (3 – 7 years) and promote enriching exchanges between children and the people raising or teaching them. The focus is always on the child’s emotional well-being. The outlined activities are applicable both in a family and a classroom environment.
