Hello Happy! Mindful Kids Reviews

Written in consultation with Dr Sharie Coombes, a Child and Family Psychotherapist, the books in the Mindful Kids series reflect the growing concern around young people and their emotions, and focus attention on the increasingly popular area of mindfulness. Hello Happy! is an interactive self-care activity book for children aged 7+ to colour and doodle their way to happiness, calm and confidence. The encouraging and simple activities and exercises tackle anxiety, sadness and stress; children will enjoy using their creativity to combat negative feelings, work out why they feel worried and how to put stress back in its place through writing, colouring, doodling and drawing. We all know how relaxing it can be to doodle and colour and this book just provides that extra encouragement. It features the charming and quirky illustrations of Katie Abey, which will keep the reader entertained and focused as they work through the book. * Parents in Touch *
Everyone feels anxious, stressed, sad or angry sometimes... and kids are no exception. The modern world is a busy, full-on place and can leave children struggling to understand their conflicted feelings, and at a loss to know how to cope with them. Many schools are now introducing mindful techniques to the classroom in an effort to deal with childhood stress and anxiety, so it's perfect timing for these two beautifully and sensitively created activity books. No Worries! and Hello Happy! are the first Mindful Kids titles in a new series from Studio Press this autumn. The two activity books combine mindful activities with Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) methods which have been developed in association with consultant Dr Sharie Coombes, a child and family psychotherapist. No Worries! is aimed specifically at young people who sometimes feel anxious or stressed. The interactive, self-care activities help children aged seven and over to colour and doodle their way to happiness, calm and confidence. The simple activities encourage children to think about their worries and the enjoyable exercises tackle anxiety, sadness and stress. Youngsters will find comfort in using their creativity to combat negative feelings, work out why they feel worried and how to put stress back in its place through writing, colouring, doodling and drawing. Hello Happy! by Stephanie Clarkson and Katie Abey is designed to help young people who are sometimes sad or angry, and encourages them to explore their feelings through effective and structured activities. Both books feature Abey's charming and quirky illustrations. Her gallery of colourful, eye-catching pictures and diagrams are subtly designed to keep readers entertained and focused as they work through the book, or simply dip into the pages for ten minutes of calm colouring. With an introduction and notes for grown-ups by Dr Coombes, lots of discussion points for parents and children, and a fantastic range of activities, these books are ideal for both at home and at school. * Lancashire Evening Post *
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. * Library Girl and Book Boy *
