We deliver to most countries worldwide. Enter your delivery address during checkout and we'll display the shipping cost when we know where to send your book.

How do supporter names work?

Every person who pledges to help to make a book gets their name included in a supporter section as a thank you as long as they pledge before the list closing deadline. If you want to add a different name, this can be changed in your account after you have completed your pledge.

Bottled, at its heart, is a book that seeks to facilitate and foster emotionally honest conversations with young people. Our rhyming picturebook can be used with children young and old as a gateway into discussing their feelings, and highlight the importance of expressing them.

The accompanying illustrations, in their dynamic and bold style, provide a relatable and accessible metaphor for sharing our emotions. The text lends itself to discussion, and raises important questions about how we take care of our mental health and those around us. We have all bottled our emotions before, we have all witnessed the damage this can cause, and we all recognise the importance of sharing honestly with people we trust the difficult feelings we experience.

This book is the perfect tool for initiating these fundamental conversations and further developing children's understanding of emotional literacy, navigation of tricky emotions, and helping them discover more about who they are.
