Meet your animal alter-egos in this picture book about dealing with our emotions - and recognising the effect they can have on others.
Sometimes we feel brave as a lion or shy like a mouse, and the zoo inside our heads reflects how we behave
on the outside...
You can’t see it, but this little boy is part mischievous monkey, part curious llama, and part chameleon, hiding from the world.
Sometimes it feels like there’s not enough room for our jumbling feelings, but the zoo inside all of us makes us who we are – reaching out to the world from the part you can’t see.
