Take Five

Written by Niall Breslin

Illustrated by Sheena Dempsey

Take Five Synopsis

Following the success of his first picture book, The Magic Moment, musician and mindfulness expert Niall Breslin (Bressie) is back with another important life lesson for young children, beautifully brought to life by illustrator Sheena Dempsey. When Freddie sees all the presents his friend Ben gets for his birthday, he feels a bit sad ... Nana teaches Freddie how to be thankful for everything he has - together they count all the wonderful things in their lives. This gratitude trick is a helpful technique for dealing with the uncomfortable and often confusing feelings of jealousy that children inevitably encounter. Praise for The Magic Moment, by the same author 'The sort of book that could be genuinely helpful to an anxious child' THE IRISH TIMES 'Teaches children a really simple and effective mindfulness technique for managing big feelings' DR MALIE COYNE 'A book with an important message' IRISH INDEPENDENT
