Taking the form of a map that needs to be coloured and completed, readers are encouraged to complete their ‘strength mountain’ to navigate their ‘wetlands of weakness’, to confront their ‘forests of fears’, and to take comfort in their ‘islands of interests’.
At a time when the mental health of young people is a point of concern, this activity book offers a much-needed opening to ideas of self-awareness, well-being and mindfulness, with a refreshing lightness of touch.
