Kiwicorn feels like he is mucking up the smallest of tasks. He moves through many different emotional states as he tries to achieve his goal. But, when he finally pauses, he realises that if he'd just stepped back and had a deep breath, the solution was there all along.
This gorgeous book explores a wide array of feelings. No emotion lasts forever and each situation brings something new. The simple story gives children the chance to identify the feeling, and opens up a discussion about what makes them feel that way. The theme of the story overall is 'resilience', not giving up when things get a bit tough.
