Following the success of his first picture book, The Magic Moment , musician and mindfulness expert Niall Breslin (Bressie) is back with another important life lesson for young children, beautifully brought to life by illustrator Sheena Dempsey.

When Freddie sees all the presents his friend Ben gets for his birthday, he feels a bit sad ...
Nana teaches Freddie how to be thankful for everything he has - together they count all the wonderful things in their lives. This gratitude trick is a helpful technique for dealing with the uncomfortable and often confusing feelings of jealousy that children inevitably encounter.
