            One ordinary Wednesday night, as Orla was dreaming, a storm arrived that caused the world to turn upside down and inside out" Highly acclaimed clinical psychologist and science communicator Jacqui Maguire has crafted a book that magically entwines children's storytelling with ...evidence-based psychology. Follow Orla's journey and learn how to harness your inner superpowers to navigate the emotional rollercoaster from unexpected change. Grown-ups might learn a thing or two as well! Throughout our lifetime we will all experience change and challenge. Common events that impact children include: marriage separation and family breakdowns, relocation, transitions to a new school, and the arrival of new siblings. The current navigation of Covid-19 also highlighting the impact of unimaginable changes. Whilst we can never erase change from life, learning and maintaining evidence-based wellbeing skills will support children and their families to cope more effectively. When the Wind Blew provides a series of practical psychological tools that can be easily practiced by all. These are easy and affordable home-based ideas that will help teach children coping mechanisms they will be able to use throughout their life. Jacqui Maguire states ""wellbeing is earnt through our daily actions. It is critical that children witness desired behaviour from the adults surrounding them, and have those behaviours positively reinforced. Tools like this book support parents with a road map. We can't expect all adults to know what to do just because they are parents. As a clinical community, we need to be providing accessible evidence-based guidance."" Beautifully packaged, this enticing story for children is illustrated by New Zealand artist Charlotte Schryvers and is a must-have for any parent, grandparent or teacher wanting to help their child navigate change.

Packed with colourful illustrations and fascinating facts, this fun book begins by looking at the anatomy of the human brain, its diffe...rent regions, and what they do. It also covers the rest of the nervous system and how nerve cells communicate. The wealth of other topics includes the senses, how we learn, memories, thinking, emotions, evolution and development of the brain, how our brain sets us apart from other animals, dreaming, and things scientists still don't fully understand - such as consciousness. In addition, this accessible introductory guide touches on how the brain copes with injury, aging, and the diseases that affect it. Written by neurobiologist Dr Liam Drew, The Brain Book is an authoritative, clearly written, reference book that's up to date with the latest in brain research. It is a perfect addition to any STEAM library and ideal for any young, budding scientist.
