The Chill Skill

Bressie’s third picture book helps children manage anger when things don’t go their way.

When Sam’s mum takes her phone back, Sam begins to feel really cross …

So Grandad teaches her a breathing technique which puts out the angry flames that are making her feel hot and bothered. It really works and soon Sam is feeling much better – and enjoying a great day at the beach with her family.

The Chill Skill equips children with another really useful mindfulness tool from Bressie and is beautifully illustrated by Emma Proctor.
