It’s Always There Special Story Time Event!


The Librarian reading It’s Always There

Charlie Byrne’s kid’s section is having another very special Saturday Story Time! We are lucky enough to have Louise Shanagher author of It’s Always There popping in to do a reading of her book as well as a lovely meditation and mindfullness workshop perfect for young children at 11am this Saturday the 18th of July!

With anxiety and stress on sadly on the rise even in young children, It’s Always There by Lou Lou Rose is a beautiful and practical children’s meditation book for peace, calm and happiness. Come on a journey through cloudy days when you don’t feel so good and learn a secret trick to help you find your sunshine again.

Lou Lou Rose is the creative partnership of Louise Shanagher and Rose Finerty. Together they aim to promote positive mental health for children through creativity and the arts. Lou Lou Rose believe passionately in nurturing children’s mental health through creative and fun methods.

Partly a story on meditation and calming, partly a workbook, this book seeks to encourage children to focus on their breathing patterns in order to bring calmness and mindfulness into situations they find stressful. A workbook section at the back of the book also encourages children to focus on the here and now, remember their thoughts are only like passing clouds and remind themselves to be thankful for what they have. Beautifully illustrated, it is rare to find such a delightful book aimed at the mental health and self confidence of younger children.

As well as reading from It’s Always There, Louise will be teaching us some easy breathing, meditation and mindfullness tips, as well as showing us how to make a ‘peace of mind in a jar’!

It’s sure to be a very interesting and relaxing story time make sure you don’t miss it at 11am this Saturday the 18th of July! For more information simply contact us or see Lou Lou Rose’s website here.
