Review: Relax Kids - How to be Happy

Beautifully presented, Relax Kids: How to be Happy, is a gorgeous book full of brilliant ideas encouraging children to spend quality time with their families, while helping them manage their worries, anxiety and emotions as they grow up to be confident and happy.

It’s marvellous to find a book that inspires a positive attitude and self-esteem in children, while helping families create happy memories together without costing a packet. Children are motivated to use their imagination, with make and do activities that reap the huge emotional rewards of attention, affection and affirmation.

Relax Kids: How to be Happy is cleverly written in the first person, by a young girl named Rosie, making it easily accessible to young families and easy to follow for children.

Each chapter has a different activity such as making peace pebbles, a chill out corner, how to be kind, how to relax, how to make friends, making an affirmation jar or simply how to have fun for free. A family can work through the book systematically or choose an activity from any given week.

Each page includes colourful pictures and diagrams to explain the activity in simple child-like language. Full of interesting ways to relax, have fun and be happy, Relax Kids: How to Be Happy is a great addition to any family’s library. Not only inspiring health and confidence in children, Relax Kids: How to be Happy is designed to help bring families closer together. And who doesn’t want that?
