Wordless picture stories launched to support children’s mental health post-pandemic

Wordless-picture-stories-launched-to-support-children-mental-health-post-pandemic - Prof. Barry Carpenter CBE and teachers Alison Erskine and Jenny Hawkes recognised that as schools reopen for the new term, supporting children to settle back into their daily school routine after such a long break and so much change will be a top priority for all teaching staff and parents.

In response, together with more than 50 primary school children – mainstream and SEN – and artist Charlotte Firmin, they developed Lenny and Lily in Lockdown and Lenny and Lily Return to School. These free wordless picture stories are specially designed to help children make sense of their experiences since lockdown began, communicate their feelings and prepare for more change as they head back to the classroom.
