The Tale of Two Fishes is a therapeutic story about a journey to develop 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.
