The Mental Health Book Club Podcast enjoyed this book, both Becky and Sydney gave it 4*.
The book takes a simple image of an egg and makes a difficult concept relatable to children helping them understand mental illness. It is a brilliant way to introduce children to many of the symptoms of mental illness. The book can be read alone by advanced readers, or with support from an adult. The book provides readers with a great starting point for conversations around mental illness. This fabulous book is a must for schools, children’s libraries as well as children’s bookshelves.
Emily has also created exercises to complement the book and can be used at home or in the classroom.
