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.

To recieve the current resources and notifications as new resources are developed, sign up to the Resources mailing list (you can unsubscribe at any time).

So far there are colouring-in sheets for the New Zealand Sign Language signs for each of the five feelings.

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
