Depression and anxiety is a growing problem in today's society and it's an especially awkward conversation to have with our children. Let's all strive to do something that makes a positive difference, one story at a time.
The publishing industry hasn’t changed much in the last century and so nor have the themes explored within many of the titles on children’s bookshelves. All the while, though, the world has changed markedly. Societal awareness of the issues that impact the earth has grown immensely and our children are growing up to face challenges that we didn’t even know existed all those years ago. It is the exploration of these challenges that make our books unique; the way we have gently woven issues of such importance into stories that carry timeless appeal for children really is our secret sauce!
