In today’s hectic, tech-driven society, young children can often find it difficult to manage their emotions, resulting in anger, stress and anxiety. This brilliant new series encourages children to take some time out to help process their emotions.
Both titles use a combination of mindful activities and recognised cognitive therapy methods and have been written by Stephanie Clarkson in close consultation with consultant psychologist, Dr. Sharie Coombes.
No Worries! Contains interactive activities for children to colour, draw and doodle away some of their anxiety and sadness. They can use their creativity to work out why they are having these negative feelings and how to combat them.
Hello Happy! Focuses more on the emotions of anger and sadness felt by some children. My son certainly found some of the activities useful when trying to calm down after an outburst.
The quirky illustrations of UK-based illustrator, Katie Abey will appeal to young readers as they work through the book or simply dip in and out.
