Dear Parent, Caregiver, Loved one,


Anxiety and mental health in children should not be taboo subjects. By talking about anxiety, naming it, normalizing it we can help our children forge a path of peace, comfort and self-love.


This book and the ideas in it are tools I have used in my twelve years of teaching in early childhood to help little ones identify and release anxiety. They are not the only ways, but they are ways of lightness. Helping our children recognize the light in themselves and in others is a path that I believe will aid in healing them and towards healing and repair of the world in which they are living. 


Yours in solidarity and in hopes of spreading light, and being light.
