This week is Children’s Mental Health Week

News 06.02.2024

This week is Children’s Mental Health Week and to mark the annual calendar moment, the National Literacy Trust has partnered with Penguin Random House UK and much-admired author and illustrator Charlie Mackesy to create a range of resources for schools and educators inspired by his book, The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and the Horse.

The aim is to delve further into the universal themes of kindness, friendship and understanding within his powerful illustrated story so the NLT asked Charlie a couple of questions about his creative process, ways to use his work in the classroom and his thoughts around the significance of reading and literacy in general to support children’s wellbeing.
