The Extraordinary Book That Makes You Feel Happy

Author, Poppy O’Neill. Illustrator, Caribay M. Benavides

Weldon Owen Children's Books

This “superb” project-packed book has a single aim – to help children feel happy.

The judges loved its bold, colourful illustrations and “captivating” variety of creative activities to be cut out and completed on every page.

Although there are many other children’s books dealing with mental health and mindfulness, the judges say this one stands out because it’s so easy to understand, full of practical tips, and fun to read and do. What’s more, there are no rules – it can be read in any order – and all the projects can be saved in a special pocket at the back of the book.
