Bailey feels blah. He doesn’t like school, doesn’t have any friends, and as a result – his tummy doesn’t feel so good either. But when Bailey befriends the new kid at school, things start to look up.
This is a very useful book for discussing issues around emotional health and wellness, including sadness, depression, resilience, and coping strategies. It is not a book that will get the “read-it-again” response from most children, but I’ve given it 4 stars because of its potential for practical application. Bailey Beats The Blah is aligned with Kids Matter, national education curriculum and supported by Kids Help Line.
- Lower Primary
