The encouraging and simple activities and exercises tackle emotions and address anxieties which children may be experiencing during and after the Covid-19 pandemic. From feeling isolated from friends and families, to missing out on experiences at school, many children will be feeling worried about the sudden change to their usual routine.
Children will enjoy using their creativity to combat negative feelings and work out how to cope with these emotions through writing, colouring, doodling, drawing, DIY and physical activities.
Keep Calm! will show children how to feel more comfortable with the current uncertainty, stay safe, enjoy the positives, find hidden advantages, look forward to the future, and talk to others about their concerns and worries.
The quirky illustrations will keep the reader entertained and focused as they work through the book, or simply dip into the pages for ten minutes of calming activity.
There's also a section at the back of the book for parents, guardians and carers with important information on how to support their child through this difficult time.
