A positive, reassuring and anxiety-eliminating book helping children change the way they think about the world. Pandemics, war, terror, natural disasters – the world seems to be full of bad news and it can all feel, well, a little bit scary. But this is just part of the story. There are in fact tons of great things happening, from robots improving health care and trees healing the planet, to everyday people helping their community with acts of kindness and the businesses fighting for good in the world. In Good News, children will learn to become fake news detectives, sussing out what’s real and what isn’t. They’ll discover the good news – the amazing anecdotes, case studies and figures around the globe that are making a difference. And they’ll learn that if we all continue to work together, things can only keep getting better and better. Empowering, reassuring and confidence-boosting, this book is a positive antidote for testing times. (9-11 yrs)
