Transatlantic is so excited to share that Catherine Hernandez’s picture book, WHERE DO YOUR FEELINGS LIVE? illustrated by Myriam Chery, is the winner of a Northern Lights Book Award in the category of Emotional Health.  

The Northern Lights Book Awards considers children’s books to be an art form and honours books that excel in aesthetic and literary qualities with an emphasis on permanency. The judges seek works that will leave a lasting impression, ones which will resonate with the reader not only now but in years to come.

In Catherine Hernandez’s new picture book, illustrated by Myriam Chery, young readers are encouraged to show compassion to themselves, their families and their communities, and to imagine where inside themselves they keep their feelings.

Championing young people for weathering the storms of their many emotions and trying their best, Where Do Your Feelings Live? is a gentle celebration of all the tricky feelings that make us who we are. This buoyant and touching text is brought vibrantly to life by illustrations from Quebec artist, Myriam Chery.

WHERE DO YOUR FEELINGS LIVE? by Catherine Hernandez

A picture book about how we can show love to difficult feelings, from the acclaimed author of M Is for Mustache: A Pride ABC Book and I Promise.

“When you’re someplace unfamiliar

How do you feel?

Does your feeling live in your tummy where strange creatures roam in fields of prickly grass?

Does it want to burrow its head deep in the sand where no one can find it?”

Congratulations Catherine!
