Andrea is from a small country town in Victoria. She is a loving wife and a mother to three beautiful children. As an Early Childhood Educator since 2006, Andrea has a passion for instilling love, kindness and resilience in all children. She enjoys playing defense in social netball and camping. Andrea loves to laugh, dance, take photos and spend time with her friends and large close-knit extended family. She finds great peace and happiness watching the clouds and sunset skies!


To put kindness, empathy, resilience and sharing your feelings to the test!

Feelings are just feelings that can at times challenge, overwhelm, confuse or upset us.

In this fun, rhyming and engaging picture book, you will discover lots of simple strategies, tools and techniques to overcome tricky feelings and situations at home, school and through life as you grow up big and confident.

“What a wonderful way to educate our young ones about feelings being neither 'good' nor 'bad'. Not only is this great for kids, but for adults too. I love that there are simple (yet effective) tips to help the reader become more self-aware. I'm excited to use this book as part of my psychoeducation with the young people I am working with. Well done Andrea!”

“A lot of time and effort has gone into creating this resourceful book for little people 😊. A great way to explain emotions and ways to manage them. Well done Andrea.”
