This beautiful picture book, written by a psychologist and illustrated by award-winning artist Laura Carlin, helps children understand their emotions and develop healthy thinking habits. Some parents may find the idea of children's self-help unpleasant. But "Your Mind is Like Heaven" by Bronwen Ballard is an example of the genre. It is aimed at seven-year-old readers, but it would also be suitable for the youngest. "Your mind is like heaven," he begins. "Sometimes it is light and blue", with "thoughts of fluffy white clouds", but sometimes it is filled with "darker, meaner and cloudy thoughts." This is the problem the book addresses ... With lyrical illustrations by Laura Carlin, this is an engaging and refreshing, jargon-free book that would be ideal for any concerned child.
