My Little Book of Happiness - Happiness and Positivity Activity Book - Gratitude Journal for Kids and Teenagers
My Little Book of Happiness explores understanding what it is to be happy and helps children find their own version of happiness! This book explains, in child friendly terms, that happiness isn't a destination to be achieved, but rather an overall state, with other emotions coming and going. Perfect for 6/7 - 16 year olds.
The book begins with activities to develop an understanding of happiness, ways to create a happier mindset and space to express happiness. Motivating quotes are dotted though the book to help spark conversations about what happiness is.
The second half of the book contains the "Happy Days" section, where there are 2 months worth of space for daily gratitude entries. Gratitude has been proven to help the brain develop a positive mindset and is a fantastic habit for children to develop early in life. Each entry asks your child to list 3 'Happy Things". These could be good things that happened or things they feel grateful for. It then asks them to write or draw about their favourite moment of the day and encourages them to use an NLP technique called anchoring as they think about this moment. Then, because we believe it's important for children to develop self awareness, they're asked WHY they think this made them happy. After each week of gratitude journaling, the book features a Happy Thoughts Activity to encourage your child to think a little deeper about their happiness.
This book is printed in the UK and made with our eco friendly FSC 120gsm white paper and 300gsm silk card cover.
