Healthy Mindsets for Little Kids is a wonderful resource for promoting resilience in children aged five to nine years old. Enabling children to flourish and building their sense of control and independence is increasingly being recognised as a goal of the utmost importance to ensure children's wellbeing and mental health. Stephanie Azri has written a highly practical curriculum consisting of 10 skill-based sessions, each of which is based on engaging activities, strength-discovering exercises and confidence-boosting fun. With clear instructions and a wealth of photocopiable resources this complete, ready-to-use programme is a must-have for busy practitioners. I highly recommend it.

It's great to see a program focussed on introducing this important topic of resilience to families with young children, and giving them a way to start discussing concepts such as identity, emotions and positive thinking. Parental involvement means that conversations about feelings and resilience can continue after the program is completed.
