Sad Simon is a sweet book about feeling sad, written by Louise Tribble and featuring the illustrations of Rhiannon Thomas.
Simon is a young Bassett Hound. And like all of us, he sometimes feels a bit sad. Simon explains that for some people, sadness can last much longer and have a much bigger impact on life. Luckily Simon has support from his friends to get him through his sad times. Simon’s friend Millie the elephant lives life in the present. She uses mindfulness to capture every moment and to help others by teaching them techniques to support their mental health. Mindful Millie teaches Simon about mindfulness and shows him how mindfulness can help him enjoy the little things in life, and eventually feel better.
