We’re grateful that our first picture book ‘A Search for Happiness’ has received positive feedback and glowing reviews from professionals, parents and most importantly from children too. We’re happy to share a selection of reviews we’ve received below, but please also check out reviews and ratings in the shop, where we would be delighted if you would leave one too.

“This clever new illustrated story and activity book has the power to bring parents, carers and children together through inspiring conversations that matter – Where does happiness come from? What’s important for a happy & healthy life? Research into these questions and the field of Positive Psychology is now embedded in many of the public health and workplace initiatives to support our wellbeing but it is rare to find it told from the perspective of our youngest children.

In a world of digital, competitive busyness, we often lament that there is no longer time to play and little incentive to read when we know these are crucial to healthy development and emotional wellbeing. Through simple stories and practices that can easily be made part of family life, children and adults alike can learn together how everyone can build lifelong wellbeing, happiness and positivity.”

“Passing on the ability to see magic in the everyday and in the little things would be a phenomenal gift to our little ones.  Imagine a generation who are no longer in the search for happiness, but have their own wellbeing figured out…That is exactly what A Search for Happiness… hopes to promote.”

“I love the idea of taking photos of having fun with friends so you can look at them and feel happy again. I also like the Zob sits quietly at the end of the day and considers what he is grateful for.” Anna, mum to Indigo
