Deborah M. Plummer, author of Helping Children to Build Self-Esteem and Inspiring and Creative Ideas for Working with Children.
What a wonderful resource - creative, enlightened and highly accessible. Cree and Brogden have captured vital elements inherent in the development and growth of social and emotional wellbeing and produced a comprehensive, fun approach which is respectful of each child's imagination and where no child's contributions are 'right' or 'wrong'. Highly recommended!

This clear, practical and inspirational book is a gift to those who work with young children. It skilfully integrates some novel approaches to social and emotional learning, such as relaxation, movement, creativity and visualisation to cultivate and nurture wellbeing in spirits, hearts - and bodies - as well as minds.
