Description

The Tale of Two Fishes is a therapeutic story about developing resilient thinking.

A little girl feeds blue fishes with up-turned mouths and red fishes with down-turned mouths. The more she feeds the red fish, the bigger and more angry they become. The girl realises that if she feeds the blue fish and ignores the red, the blue fish will thrive. The story teaches children about the importance of balanced thinking and not dwelling too much on negative thoughts.

This beautifully illustrated storybook will appeal to all children, and can be used by practitioners, educators and parents as a tool to discuss the importance of resilient thinking and the control we have over our own thoughts and behaviour.

This story can be purchased alongside six other storybooks as part of a set (ISBN: 9781138556478), as well as in a set alongside the guidebook Nurturing Emotional Resilience in Vulnerable Children and Young People and six other storybooks (9781138556454). The guidebook outlines ways to use these beautifully told and visually appealing stories to nurture emotional resilience with children and will be invaluable tools for anyone working to build emotional resilience with children and young people.
