Join author and illustrator, Jion Sheibani, for an inspiring and heartfelt digital event, including a reading, a sneak peek around her studio and a creative draw along. There will be interactive games to play which aim to open conversations surrounding the worries children can feel in an entertaining, fun and accessible format. Plus, there are also activities to take away after the session is over. This video was originally created for Mental Health Awareness Week 2021.
To help you make the most of this event, here are some useful extra resources and activities:
