‘This second book by Lou Lou Rose does not disappoint! It is a beautiful book [and] a wonderful resource for all children … Working in mental health, I see … how teaching about emotions from a young age helps children become more resilient and confident in later life.’ – Nicola Dywer, health psychologist

  1. Lilliput Press

    Where Is Happy? by Louise Shanagher and Rose Finerty. The Dynamic Duo Lou Lou Rose is back at it again. They have created a second book and once again have come up with a beautiful children’s mindfulness book, both through its words and its illustrations, that promotes self-compassion, self-confidence and self-esteem in a perfectly suited for children way. Where Is Happy? encourages children to seek inner peace rather than material gain through easily relatable content written into relaxing, flowing rhyming sequences. The book is full of extra content to help teachers and parents integrate the book and its message. This book is a great read and a great social-emotional learning tool for kids! – EVE
