This heart-warming story about a dog and puppy is a celebration of what is important in life. Each double page has a single blessing: A happy family is number one', 'Playing together is number three'. The illustrations are bold and life-affirming, dotted with shimmering, gold foil. The final page is the dog and puppy snuggled up in their basket, eyes closed. The illustration is gently outlined with a sprinkle of glitter to reflect that life's real treasure is love. 'We've counted our blessings from one to ten; there are many more to come. But now it's time to close your eyes. Sleep tight, my little one'. According to the National Institute of Mental Health at least one in five children experience mental health issues before the age of eleven. While the causes are varied and often complex, gentle stories that help children to appreciate and celebrate what they have can only contribute, albeit in a small way, towards a positive mindset. After sharing the story help children to talk about their own blessings with a friend - how many can they count? Join in with them to model constructive discussion. * Early Years Educator *
