New ‘Hope’ Book from Anstee Bridge

Hope’s world has turned grey. It rains so much it sweeps her up into the ocean. There she finds sea creatures with blankets of seaweed, paintbrushes, and wise words. Overnight, Hope learns the importance of being kind to herself and letting go of her worries.

Hope is a picture book written and illustrated with Anstee Bridge students. The story champions the spirit of Anstee Bridge – confidence through creativity, based on a programme that follows Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. It has been written for 7 to 8 year-olds as a way to talk about tackling feeling anxious, lonely, or full of worry.

The book launches in July 2021.
