This timely and delightfully illustrated workbook for children (5-11 years) touches on many typical difficulties faced by young people through Covid-19 and lockdown. It provides a gentle structure to process and preserve memories for the future with a positive focus and elicits coping strategies for the main challenges (angry, sad and scared). The natural style aids children in opening up and initiating discussion with familiar adults whilst introducing the notion that further support exists if needed. A practical and charming tool for home and school use supporting children through the mental health consequences of the novel coronavirus.
