Lucy is like many other children in the world right now: in quarantine with her family.
Her hair is blue, but this time she knows why.
This FREE eBook is designed to help children realise they’re not alone in the current conditions with Covid-19, to help them understand it’s temporary and to help them express how they’re feeling.
It’s “okay, sometimes, to have a blue day.”

HealthiER Minds, East Renfrewshire’s guide to promote the mental wellbeing of our children and young people.
Our aim is to help staff and parents find the information you need to develop children and young people’s talents and abilities in a way that will support them to meet life’s common challenges, develop their resilience, and have healthier minds as a result.
Information for parents and carers
We are drafting text that colleagues can use when communicating with parents and carers about RSHP learning. Our intention is to provide draft text for each Curriculum for Excellence Level. We would like to see what you already provide, this could be across Levels or aimed at a specific year group. Do you have leaflets or presentations that you could share? These will be treated in confidence. You could also just tell us what would be really helpful. Send us an email with any attachments or weblinks: firstname.lastname@example.org
Your favourite books
We are compiling lists of recommended books for your class, school or centre library. We want to hear from you about what you already provide and what you know the children, young people and parents/carers love to borrow, hear or read that supports RSHP learning. Send us an email or weblinks: email@example.com
Early Level learning
So far, this Level has only been populated with the topics or themes that we want to consider when it comes to RSHP learning. We want to think about the learning at this Level in a different way from the ‘learning activity’ model we have used at other Levels. If you have any material, programmes, resources or anything else that currently supports your work at Early Level, please let us know. Again, your contributions will be treated with confidence and we are happy to credit any sources where appropriate. In advance, thank you!
