Mental health has become a bigger than usual issue these last few years. Soak In The Sunshine is a journal aimed at 6 to 11 year olds. It is a blank weekly journal Monday-Sunday, for the young person to fill in about their days. There are also sections for them to fill in such as ‘The best part of my personality is…’ ‘The thing that made me laugh this week was…’
The journal also contains quotes FROM young people. There are other journals for children and young people out there, but often they contain quotes from adults – I think we can all agree that quite often young people are smarter and much more insightful about life than us!
