The Message We Got From A Little Light by Andrew Newman
Earlier this month, the Art Wonderland team was in the middle of our research for one of our online initiatives and came across a meaningful series of mindfulness books for children by Andrew Newman called Conscious Stories.

What struck us most about these short stories were the relatable metaphors used by the author to communicate otherwise deep emotions and difficult situations our younger audiences might experience. With the recent spike in mental health related happenings that occur in our day-to-day lives, the team realised that the discovery of these books came at the perfect time and that we had to tap on the books as valuable resources that could open up a safe space for our children to have difficult conversations surrounding mental health.
