Working in the education and child protection fields in Australia, with over 60 years combined experience we saw a need for something practical, explicit, engaging and relevant for our youth.
What made us totally passionate about this project is our belief that all children deserve the tools to be able to flourish and we aimed to make something that was unique and personal, as well as simple and practical. The books are tactile and promote lifelong positive mental health habits. The books serve the purpose of building psychological resources and resilience of children who have suffered trauma and as a great preventative measure for other children.
