It’s Mental Health Awareness Week and Peters Books’ librarians have created a list of books to get children talking about mental health. One of those books is our ‘Alfred and the Blue Whale’ by Mina Lystad, illustrated by Ashild Irgens, which features a boy suffering from debilitating anxiety. Other books from Wacky Bee which touch on mental health issues are middle grade title, ‘Double Felix’ by Sally Harris, illustrated by Maria Serrano (autism and ocd), and picture book ‘Pink!’ by Lynne Rickards, illustrated by Margaret Chamberlain (self esteem issues).
