The A-Z of Minding Me, written by Tracey Flynn and Niamh Gogan and beautifully illustrated by Kerry O'Callaghan is out now and our friends at Gill Books have shared some of the book with us here!

We are delighted to give you a small taste of the book that wants to help kids embrace and celebrate their unique talents, while encouraging small acts of self-care and kindness and promoting wellness of the body and mind.

It's full of positive messages and will help children to deal with some big feelings in their own way. We know it's an A-Z but we are going to jump right in to D for Dream...

Of course, it's really important to have fun and one of the best things about being a kid is playing...so P is for Play!

The book also includes an accompanying online resource pack with activities for educators and parents to help further integrate the principles in the book into a child’s daily life.
