"Research demonstrates that a child's social and emotional wellbeing is predictive of a range of positive life outcomes. Yet childhood mental ill-health is rising and occurring earlier. The good news is that children can learn habits and concepts that build resilience and boost feeling happy. This book helps children explore those ideas and build their skills in lots of fun and creative ways" ~ Vanessa King
