BOOK REVIEWS AND TESTIMONIALS
"Being BEa is a heartfelt and practical addition to any child’s library. Designed to help children understand their own emotions, improve their self-esteem, and build a coping toolbox, this easy to use workbook is beautifully written and illustrated. As a child psychologist, I am looking forward to incorporating this workbook into my own resource library. The online worksheets that compliment the book are also useful and enjoyable for children and parents to access together. The positive messages incorporated throughout Being BEa can help both children and parents understand that we all have a little superhero within us, and we just need a reminder of our own inner tools and resiliency that can help bring that superhero out."

"What an amazing resource to support the social-emotional learning we undertake every day at school. The fact that the activities are embedded in the story makes it tangible for our kids, and I love the amazing techniques that are incorporated. Mindfulness, gratitude, and self-care to name a few, all presented in a bright, fun and accessible way. Thank you!"
Kayleigh Donovan, Elementary Resource Teacher
"This book is a true gem! We often hear about concepts like mindfulness, mantras and using breath to help us in various ways, what we love is how this book takes it the step further to tell you HOW to do these things, how to bring them into real life situations to help build confidence and ease anxieties.
The way it does this covers every type of learner with visual cues & beautiful artwork, physical things you can do, and auditory elements which will help it's messages reach a huge spectrum of children (& adults!). It breaks through emotional barriers that are standing in the way of allowing them to embrace and share their truest selves! This will be kept at arms length for the duration of our childrens’ childhood at minimum!!! Bravo!"

"Being Bea is an excellent interactive book that takes you on a little girl’s journey of overcoming obstacles that most children experience. I use this book regularly with my clients and not only do they love the main character, Bea, but they identify with her as well. When my client’s see Bea overcome her worries, they learn that they can do so also. This book provides fantastic visual tools and techniques that keep my clients engaged and are easy for them to follow and practice on their own. I highly recommend this book for any child struggling with worries, anxiety and/or fears and can use a boost in their self-confidence."

"There is no book I have come across like this. It’s extremely unique and incredibly useful. It gives the reader such a good understanding of how to talk to their kids. This book gave me an opportunity to have talks with my 5 year oId girls which otherwise I may not have had."
