Float: The guide to letting go by Aimee L. Ruland

Anxiety, depression, and panic attacks are something that plagues a lot of people. My daughter is one of those people. She has anxiety and panic attacks. It is hard sometimes to help them through it. We’ve tried a lot of different coping methods and some work and some don’t. That's why when I got the chance to review the book called Float I was excited.

Float is a book I believe is based on the grounding method and projection for helping people especially kids to deal with their emotions. I used the idea of putting those feelings into a balloon and blowing it up and letting it go. In my psychology degree, we learned a little bit about some of this and it can work with all ages. I love the colorful illustrations and calming words. It was easy enough for my daughter to read and understand. She loved looking at the pictures and she felt it made her calmer. She liked the idea of the analogy of the balloon.

I definitely recommend this book for all ages! It might not work for everyone but it’s definitely worth a try. So pick up your copy today!

Float: A Guide to Letting Go seeks to encourage children to process their emotions gently and in a way that allows them purposeful ownership of what they think and how they feel. It will aid them in identifying the root of their feelings, help them to examine their reactions to emotions and decide for themselves what they may be ready to release. The thoughtful use of color and symbols, and the guided practice of breathwork, encourages readers to maintain a broad focus as they become more grounded and aware. The playful rhyme dances with readers as they grow on their journey to the present, where they are beautifully set free.

Readers will enjoy:
- Learning how to identify and examine emotions
- Understanding how to release unwanted thoughts and feelings
- Permission to acknowledge, accept, feel and heal in a unique way

"Aimee Ruland's book, Float, is a masterpiece of creativity where the intangible becomes relatable, fun and beautifully depicted. Teaching children mindfulness, kindness and intention regarding their feelings might just be the most important lesson we can teach them. This book belongs on the shelf of every child--or anyone who has ever been a child." --Stephanie Wharton, M.Ed., INHC

"What a beautiful message for children of all ages! A brilliant example of emotions and feelings that may be difficult for children to define with words. Float is the perfect story to help a child's mind and body unwind at the end of the day. I found myself thinking about the message long after reading the story." --Tanya Swanson, kindergarten teacher

"Beautiful, soothing words to comfort children and guide them in using imagery to help deal with the weight of daily emotions." --Susan E. Slater, children's librarian

"Float does a great job blending imagery to relate to feelings of young children. The colors of the balloons are neatly tied into each feeling discussed in the book. The strategies are appropriate, simple and thought provoking. A great read!" --Matthew Menard, M.S., M.Ed., LPC

"Aimee Ruland is the Dr. Seuss of children's therapy books. My seven-year-old loves the book, and so do I." --Jeffrey Barkstrom, LAC
