The ‘Mind Yourself’ reading guide contains reviews and recommendations of over 400 books for children and young people from birth to age eighteen and is designed as a ‘first-aid kit’ for worries, sadness, loneliness, anxiety and any number of feelings that a young person may want to explore during these anxious times of COVID 19!

The guide contains mental health and wellbeing information from Jigsaw and ISPCC Childline, including tips and coping strategies for young people and advice for adults on supporting children to build resilience.

The guide is available free of charge at your local library, and may be picked up free of charge when libraries re-open. In the meantime it may be downloaded HERE
