Pack your bags and lace up your boots… it’s time to explore the landscape of YOU
This charming activity book aims to help young readers work through their anxieties, to encourage honest self-reflection, and to inspire a sense ofacceptance and optimism even in times of darkness.
Aimed at children ages 8-13, this book encourages readers to navigate the landscape of their psyche by colouring, writing, doodling, drawing and complet- ing personality quizzes.They are invited to complete their ‘strength mountain’ to explore their ‘wetlands of weakness’, to confront their ‘forests of fears’, and to take comfort in their ‘islands of interests’.
At a time when the mental health of young people is a point of concern, this activity book offers a much-needed opening to ideas of self-awareness, well-being and mindfulness, with a refreshing lightness of touch.
