When I'm Surprised (My Feelings)

Author(s): Moira Butterfield

Early Experiences & Issues

All children experience feeling surprised at times, from finding a hairy spider in the bath to finding out they are moving house and school. Sometimes surprises can make children feel worried, but this beautifully expressive and playful picture book shows them what to do when they feel this strong emotion, and suggests some brilliant ways to make themselves feel better.

Product Information

Moira Butterfield wrote her first book when she was 8 years old. She glued photos of her cats into an exercise book and wrote about them, too. Now she is an internationally-published children's author, writing all kinds of different books. She doesn't write any one particular kind. Some of her books are full of facts; some are imaginary stories and some are for children under 5. She wants everyone to love words, and is proud that all kinds of different children will find something that they like among them. She lives in Bath, in the UK, and writes in a small office sandwiched between a deli and an art gallery, and positioned opposite a sweet shop. When school ends each day she hears children laughing and shouting as they race past. It all helps to remind her why she's sitting there in her office and what exactly she's doing. She's creating books for those children outside, and for families all over the world to use together.
