A simple book to help children navigate through difficult emotions
Sometimes when children are faced with certain challenges, they act out in what we call meltdowns, temper tantrums, or worst - put on a front that shows everyone else that they're fine, pretending everything is okay. But are they really okay? How do you guide your child to grow emotionally and be more resilient in difficult situations?
Leroy and His Secret Helmet is a heart-warming story that aims to impart lessons on social-emotional learning. Vividly coloured to appeal to your little ones with imagination while guiding them on becoming more resilient when facing challenges.

Meet the Author
Principal Counsellor of Grace Oasis Counselling
Roland Koh grew up in Singapore and was raised as a child in a time where ‘talking about feelings’ was unfamiliar. It was over the years of training and career in counselling that he learned to be more emotionally aware and connected. He sees this as an essential factor to help relationships thrive.
He is now a counsellor by day and an author by night. This story is inspired from his previous job as an Outward Bound Instructor where he guided children and teens to see that ‘fear is not in the absence of courage’. His therapy work with children illuminates the importance of embracing vulnerability as a cornerstone to building resilience. He hopes parents, caregivers and educators will find this book useful as an entry point to engage children to talk about their intense feelings and learn healthy ways to work through them.
