Smiling Mind 1: The Thank-you Present

A book About Gratitude




The first picture book in a new series developed with leading Australian mindfulness organisation, Smiling Mind.

The Thank-you Present is the first book in the five-part mindfulness-informed series, developed in collaboration with Smiling Mind, Australia's leading not-for-profit organisation in the pre-emptive mental health space.

Evie and Lola can’t wait for their birthdays, because birthdays mean presents! Evie and Lola LOVE getting presents, and they want presents now.Will they be able to find a way to be thankful for what they already have and enjoy the here and now?

This delightful picture book explores the different ways and reasons to say thank you, and captures all the warm feelings that we get from showing gratitude and giving rather than receiving.
