Your mind is like the sky. Sometimes it's clear and blue—but sometimes a raincloud thought comes along and makes everything seem dark. So, what can we do about rainclouds?

This beautiful picture book, written by psychologist Bronwen Ballard and illustrated by award-winning artist Laura Carlin, shows children that worries and negative thoughts are normal and helps them develop healthy thinking habits.

A story told in pictures is captioned with helpful, poetic ways of thinking happily, in a style that is both instantly accessible and backed by real expertise. Laura Carlin’s deceptively simple illustrations put abstract concepts into colorful, calming visual terms, showing how we can choose to think about how we think.

Tips on mindfulness and extra resources for parents are included at the back of the book. This is the perfect book to read aloud with children or grandchildren, encouraging talking about feelings and taking action to live happily.
