Have you grabbed a copy of non-fiction book, You Matter – Be Your Own Best Friend for the young people in your life yet?
Written by award-winning children’s author Sue Lawson and health practitioner and educator, Sue Hindle, You Matter – Be Your Own Best Friend is filled with practical ways to help children examine and deal with their emotions and feelings. Prue Pittock’s bright and energetic illustrations add to the book’s message and add a sense of lightness and joy.
You Matter began as a conversation about the alarming increase of anxiety and other mental health issues the authors had noticed in young children. From a conversation in 2019, and with the guidance and support of Wild Dog Books Publisher, Maryanne Ballantyne, an idea has grown into a non-fiction book endorsed by teachers, school well-being officers and a psychotherapist.
