Welcome to The Blueberry Forest

Home of our EQ Teaching Bears

‘The Bears of Blueberry Forest’ books will help children to understand and cope with their emotions whilst giving them essential social skills. Although our stories were originally designed for children aged 3–7 years, we have found that readers up to the age of 10 and beyond love them! The books, created by Deborah McPhilemy, help children of all ages and backgrounds to develop the skills and tools early on, so that they then have these skills and tools for life.

Meet The Gang


My name is Abby

I love words and I help children to label and identify their feelings. When they know what a feeling is and what it is called, it helps them to talk about it and to tell you what is going on.


I'm Adam

I love sports. I help children to use sports & activities to get moving off the couch and away from screens. Exercise is a great way to burn off energy, relieve stress and make new friends.


I'm Wilson

I love feeling happy. I help children have fun by doing simple things like dancing, chasing butterflies and catching bugs. Being mindful and enjoying life in the moment is the secret to being happy.

My name is Michael

I love feeling calm and ready. I show children how to deal with their emotions, to trust their intuition and develop their own sense of wisdom. Knowing how to deal with everyday situations self-esteem.


I'm Cody

I'm a biker bear and I love travelling the world. I share fun facts with children to show how people and creatures live. Understanding diversity and ecology helps build empathy and eliminate adversity.

My name is Molly

I’m a lamb and I love food. I live on Farmer Joe’s farm, next to The Blueberry Forest. I love showing children how to make tasty food that is good for their bodies and helps them feel good too.
