Kids can find the world we live in daunting and a bit scary. There’s just so much going on with climate change, social media and pressures to work out what it is you want to do in life – even at this young age! This book will help young readers explore some common areas of anxiety and conflict on the topic ofCOPING with CHANGE in a fun and gentle way.
Very cute animals illustrate each scenario to help young readers understand: why change can be positive, dealing with disappointment, why we like routines and some common experiences of change, such as a new sibling or moving house. Readers are asked to think about how those scenarios might relate to their experiences and then encouraged to have a go, ask for help, be brave and to embrace feelings of nervousness as well as enjoying feelings of pride or happiness.
Information and enjoyable activities combine to encourage readers to build their resilience and personal skills so they can Bounce Back from any difficulties in thoughtful and practical ways.

Increasingly, the value of solid character skills is considered just as important as academic skills and this book is a great foundation for developing the flexible mindset needed to cope with our ever-changing world. To thrive, kids that can Bounce Back and build resilience will have a head-start on their peers.
