Feel Brave children's series:

Kiwi author, Avril McDonald, is helping kids overcome fear, anxiety and grief in a new book series.

Feel Brave, a series of beautifully illustrated children’s picture books are designed to help children (4-7 year olds) explore emotional intelligence, positive psychology and some of the real-life issues they might face in an engaging and non-threatening way.

They cover a range of topics including confidence issues, change, loss and grief, managing anxiety and bullying.     
'Wolfgang' and other colourful, lovable characters help children learn to cope with these issues, and develop the resilience they need to 'feel brave'.


1. Feel Brave Series Kit:
All 5 story books plus Teaching Guide (see items 2 - 7 below for more details):

Avril received the following review from Dr Sue Roffey, Director Wellbeing Australia Adjunct Assoc. Professor UWS, author, speaker and educational consultant:

"The Feel Brave stories provide teachers with a valuable hook on which to address critical issues in children’s lives such as friendship, anxiety and loss. Conversations about such topics can be tricky to manage so it is essential that discussions take place in a safe and positive environment. The activities provided in the teaching guide offer both creative and cooperative strategies for building resilience, confidence and emotional literacy and are easy for teachers to incorporate in their classes.  The earlier that children learn to understand their emotional selves and how important it is to support each other through challenging times the better for their future wellbeing. Well done Avril and Tatiana, this is a brilliant and very welcome resource."

2. Feel Brave Teaching Guide (only):

Feel Brave aims to help transform education with the help of creative storytelling.

Feel Brave broadly supports the personal, social and emotional development (PSED) objectives in the national curriculum, and the teaching guide offers plenty of ready-to-use lesson ideas, meaning this series is not just great independent reading for children, it is ideal for use in the classroom.

The Feel Brave series - Meet Wolfgang...


3. Wolf and the Baby Dragon

When Wolfgang and his friends learn about a secret cave where a baby dragon is growing they quickly run off to find it but, sadly, Wolfgang gets left behind. His bag is full of heavy worries that are making him slow and he just can’t let go of them. When he trips on a rock and falls, Spider shows him how to rest his busy mind and that worries aren’t so bad if you share them.

Nobody likes worries, so it’s good to know how to give a worried mind a rest!

4. Wolf's Colourful Coat

Wolfgang can’t wait for it to get cold enough for him to wear his brand new colourful coat but when the time finally arrives, some nasty creatures make fun of it. Wolfgang feels upset and is afraid that they will hurt him again, so he hides away in the tree house. Spider encourages Wolfgang to tell someone he trusts about how he is feeling and he learns that things aren’t always as they seem.  

Sometimes we get hurt by others and we have to be brave enough to continue to be ourselves and to keep our hearts open. There can be some lovely surprises for us when we do!

5. Wolf and the Shadow Monster

Wolfgang is excited to be allowed to have his friends over to stay for the whole night. They all have great fun until the lights go out and Wolfgang’s secret fear of the dark is revealed. His friends laugh at him until they hear his story and see the Shadow Monster for themselves! Spider shows Wolfgang a special magic spell to make scary things go away. The magic spell is so good that all of his friends want to try it on the things that scare them too.  

Life can sometimes be scary but there are some great tricks out there to make scary things not so scary anymore. You can even have a little fun with it!

6. Grand Wolf

Wolfgang and his friends love to visit The Grand Wolf but one day they arrive to find that he has gone and this makes them all feel very sad. Spider shows Wolfgang that by just seeing things a little differently he can feel happy again, knowing that true love never ends.  

Our lives are in a constant state of change and only we can ever know how big each change feels to us. The more we can talk about and embrace change, the better we get at it (whatever shape or size it comes in).

7. Wolf is Not Invited

Wolfgang is left heartbroken when his best friend Catreen runs off without him to play with Clarissa. Spider shows Wolfgang how to make his own fun and Wolfgang realises that there are other great friends out there just waiting to be met!  

There are some situations and feelings that we cannot change and there are some that we can. Knowing the difference between the two (and some ways to make ourselves feel happy) is a great trick to have up our sleeves!
