A Lesson About The Health Release of Emotions That is Universal, Regardless of Age

Learning how to deal with our emotions and being able to express how we are feeling in a healthy way is a skill that is ageless. The ability to say what is on our minds in difficult situations is the key to healthy relationships and hopefully preventing mental health problems later in life. Unfortunately, there are many who never develop this skill or learn it after years of holding onto unresolved anger.

The new children's book, Meowy and Ruffy, written by Sharon Kremen Martin and illustrated by Darina Gavrilyuk was published last year. It follows the friendship between a cat named Meowy and a dog named Ruffy. The book starts with a conversation about meeting an Octopus and ends with questions about communication and feelings.

I fell in love with the story. I can imagine the delight of a young child connecting with the characters. As an adult, I appreciate the intelligence and the heart that the author has entwined into the narrative. It could have been written as a silly story (which is perfectly fine). But the appeal, as I see it, is that the grownup may get as much out of the book as the child does.

Do I recommend it? Yes.
