New Zealand Sign Language

Jack Feels Big is a children's book teaching kids the names for their feelings through stories.


Each story starts with the name for its feeling in English, New Zealand Sign Language and te reo Māori.

I've put the outlines for the signs together into a colouring-in pack.

Its free for non‑commercial use as long as it isn't altered.

Each colouring-in page has:

  • the New Zealand Sign Language sign

  • the English word

  • Information about where it's from

  • a QR Code linking to a video of the sign being made.

Jack and Sophie each show both signs:

  • Overwhelmed

  • Persistent

  • Frustrated

  • Brave

  • Lonely
