A look at how young children can find ways to cope with the feelings engendered by anxiety and issues with self-esteem.
Young children can find the world we live in daunting and a bit scary. There's just so much going on with new schools, making friends and even things like climate change. This book will help young readers to develop a flexible mindset and to explore feelings around anxiety and self-esteem in a gentle and supportive way.
Building resilience is a key life skill that is important to learn from a young age. Very cute photographs of animals illustrate each scenario to help young readers understand: what anxiety is, why talking about it will help, why trying new things is good for us, tips on building confidence and that failure isn't always a bad thing. Readers are asked to think about how those scenarios might relate to their experiences and then encouraged to have a go at some practical activities, ask for help, be brave and to embrace feelings of nervousness as well as enjoying feelings of pride or happiness.
The Build Resilience series is suitable for readers aged 6+ and for those studying PSHE as part of the schools curriculum. They are an excellent resource of PSHE topics for parents, teachers and carers as talking points for class discussion or as books to read together.
