There’s a Happy Moon in My Side is a fun way for children to learn emotional awareness and resilience skills.
“One morning, when Lucy woke up, there was a Happy Moon in her side.”
The book follows the journey of a young girl, Lucy, who wakes up one morning to discover a Happy Moon in her side. Lucy discovers the moon is a best-friend-kind-of-moon who helps her in fun times and the difficult times. The Happy Moon understands what she is feeling, helps her to see things differently, and suggests useful actions to take. The Happy Moon follows the resilience-building pattern of empathy, perspective, and action, or put more simply: feel, think, do. At the back of the book are tools to help parents, carers, and educators develop children's emotional awareness, resilience, and wellbeing. These are skills that will also help them as they grow into adulthood.
This book has been designed for readers who want to provide something for their child to read on their own and then discuss or for reading to their child.
