After reading the story, ask your child when they have felt happy, sad, worried, scared, relieved, or angry like the characters in the story. What happened to make them feel that way? Share some of your own experiences and how they made you feel.
Continue this discussion by completing the ‘How does Bru’Me feel?’ activity.
Affirm to your child that feelings are not right or wrong, they are just feelings and all of them are important. End the chat by looking at the ‘Feelings’ poster, say the motto together and find a place to display it.
The motto of the story is:
It’s okay to feel mad or sad or happy as can be because all my feelings are a part of me!
Here are some additional posters of Bru’Me and his friends for your child to enjoy.
Your child can colour in these pictures of Bru’Me, Musa Monkey, Thandi Tortoise & Sammy Squirrel.
