Meet Oliver and his big bowl of feelings, a children’s book about emotions and feelings written by our founder, Marieke van Asten. In this lovely story, we meet 8-year-old Oliver, who lives on Dot Island, a beautiful island in the Caribbean.

Every chapter is written around a different emotion. We see Oliver struggling to talk about how he feels and finally finding the courage after a few failed attempts. 

The story is brought to life by Kibibi Stephenson, with her sweet and relatable illustrations.
