• The ENTIRE 5 book series 

LESSONS OF A LAC, this book is a must for children, both at home and at school, especially those who are prone to worry. Early intervention is the KEY. BUT everyone worries — and big or little worries can all be managed the Loppy and Curly way.

BRAVE, the second book in the Lessons of a LAC series, provides kids with a strategy for how to face things that worry them. While kids are blessed with imagination, that can be a source of anxiety. However, it can also be tapped to help them to feel calm, confident and BRAVE.

PERFECT PETUNIAS, is a book especially for those little people who find it hard to make mistakes, designed to ’shape’ perfectionistic tendencies towards being a little more self-accepting and flexible. 

GREY-GLASSES-ITIS helps children to understand the link between how they see things and how they feel. Loppy notices that he feels differently when he looks at the world around him through different-coloured glasses. Yellow glasses make him feel cheerful. Grey glasses make him feel sad. Children will learn that a simple shift in perception can often give them some influence over their feelings, helping to build their emotional resilience.

TREE, the fifth book in the popular ‘Lessons of a LAC’ series, Tree will help children to learn how to say goodbye and process grief. Tree is the much-loved centrepiece of the community. But one day Curly and Loppy notice that Tree’s leaves are starting to fall — at the wrong time of year — and Tree’s bark is flaking. It’s Tree’s time to leave. Fortunately Curly is able to teach Loppy how to accept that Tree is leaving, say goodbye, and commemorate Tree’s life.

Thank you Lynn & Kirrili

Lessons of a Lac is a fantastic way for the children to learn about their emotions and how to manage their worries and concerns. Both the characters and the wonderful illustrations throughout the story kept the children highly engaged and interested.

Lessons of a Lac provides children with simple and useful strategies when feeling worried, scared or lonely.

We have been using the language and the ABC strategies in our Stage 1 classroom and it has really empowered the children to take control of their emotions. I often hear one of our students encouraging another classmate to ‘Think a Curly thought!’

I love having these tools in the class room.

As a teacher, finding resources to support my students' emotional well-being is crucial, and the Lessons of a LAC Teacher Pack has been an absolute game-changer. The entire pack is a treasure trove of tools and materials that make managing anxiety in the classroom not only easy but also fun for the kids. The books cover essential topics in a way that's engaging and relatable, and the plushies, finger puppets, and Courage Cards add a delightful touch to our lessons. Plus, the digital video lesson units are invaluable resources that make planning a breeze. It's clear that this pack was carefully designed with input from professionals, and the results speak for themselves, my students are more confident, resilient, and better equipped to manage their worries. If you're a teacher looking to create a supportive and nurturing classroom environment, this pack is a must have!
