When Marshall Mouse is Happy - When Marshall Mouse is Sad (Marshall Mouse series) (Board book)
This book is a simple introduction to emotions and opposites. Through delightful illustrations and a simple text, it shows how times of happiness are celebrated and times of sadness are helped by the support of friends and family and, with time, will pass. In this way, this book supports children in developing resilience. As a 2-in-1 book, it cleverly introduces the concept of opposites. To engage children further, a little character named Antony Ant is hidden on each page, waiting to be found by young readers. The first book, on happiness, is read in one direction. The book can then be flipped over, so that the second story, on sadness, can then be read.
