Lessons of a LAC

SPECIFICATIONS: Paperback | 305 x 230 mm / 12 x 9 Inches | Colour | 32 Pages

It can be hard to stop worrying when you’re a Little Anxious Creature!

Lessons of a LAC is an essential resource tool, presented in an engaging picture-book format, to help children manage their worries and anxieties. Through the characters of Loppy LAC (‘Little Anxious Creature’) and Curly the Calmster, kids discover a useful way to think about their anxieties — the first crucial step in managing them. This is the first book in the gorgeous ‘Lessons of a LAC’ series, designed to give children ways to think about and manage common emotional difficulties.


Brave 

SPECIFICATIONS:  9781925117844 | Paperback | 310 x 230 mm / 12¼ x 9 inches | 32 Pages | Colour

Brave, the second book in the Lessons of a LAC series, provides kids with a strategy for how to face things that worry them. While kids are blessed with imagination, that can be a source of anxiety. However, it can also be tapped to help them to feel calm, confident and BRAVE! In Brave, Curly teaches Loppy how to manage his worries, specifically his worries about going to school. However, the technique of helping children to ‘find their brave’ can be applied to any challenging situation.


Perfect Petunias

SPECIFICATIONS: Paperback | 305 x 230 mm / 12 x 9 Inches | Colour | 32 Pages

Perfect Petunias is a book especially for those little people who find it hard to make mistakes, designed to ’shape’ perfectionistic tendencies towards being a little more self-accepting and flexible.

Loppy LAC is very worried about not doing his homework well enough. He is always focusing on what he hasn’t done rather than what he has, and he becomes very frustrated. So, his friend Curly teaches him about how petunias grow — in lots of different, imperfect directions that we can’t control!


Grey-glasses-itis

SPECIFICATIONS: Paperback | 305 x 230 mm | 12 x 9 inches | Colour | 32 Pages

Life’s Brighter When You’re Not Wearing Grey Glasses!

The fourth book in the popular ‘Lessons of a LAC’ series, Grey-glasses-itis helps children to understand the link between how they see things and how they feel. Loppy notices that he feels differently when he looks at the world around him through different-coloured glasses. Yellow glasses make him feel cheerful. Grey glasses make him feel sad. Children will learn that a simple shift in perception can often give them some influence over their feelings, helping to build their emotional resilience.


Tree

SPECIFICATIONS:  9781925820126 | Paperback | 305 x 230 mm / 12 x 9 inches | 32 Pages | Colour

A Gentle Story of Love and Loss

The fifth book in the popular ‘Lessons of a LAC’ series, Tree will help children to learn how to say goodbye and process grief.

Tree is the much-loved centrepiece of the community. But one day Curly and Loppy notice that Tree’s leaves are starting to fall — at the wrong time of year — and Tree’s bark is flaking.

It’s Tree’s time to leave. Fortunately Curly is able to teach Loppy how to accept that Tree is leaving, say goodbye, and commemorate Tree’s life.
