Memories of Change: A Thought Bubbles Picture Book About Thinking Differently
It’s the Queen’s birthday, and the children must work together to create the most amazing machine – a machine that can create 100 apple crumbles by the afternoon tea party.
With growing concerns around mental health, and in the wake of a period of uncertainty and change, it is more important than ever to pay attention to how young children express their emotions, and to teach them to articulate their thoughts in a healthy way. This beautifully illustrated picture book helps children understand the ‘journey’ in thinking, exploring the ways in which collaborating, experimenting and changing ideas can open new possibilities. By learning to reframe their memories, children learn that change and transition don’t have to be bad things.
When it comes to child and adolescent mental health issues, prevention and early intervention are key. The ‘serve and return’ format of this book provides a virtual space where children can explore thoughts and feelings, teaching them to be resilient in the face of change.
