Look Who’s Here
Book 3 in the Mindfully Me Series
‘I was so impressed with [Louise and Rose] and the way they taught [that] I bought a bunch of books to take back with me to the U.S. … The meditation teachers that go through our Meditation Teacher Academy have really enjoyed [It’s Always There and Where is Happy?].’ – Sarah McLean, Director of the McLean Teacher Academy Institute
Working in mental health, I see the importance of helping children become more aware of their emotions and how teaching [children] about emotions from a young age helps them become more resilient and confident in later life … This book can assist children with naming emotions, and understanding what they are feeling and why … The message in this book is as beautiful as its illustrations and it manages to balance being a gorgeous book … with having a very positive and important message.’ —Nicola Dywer, health psychologist, on Where is Happy?
