Book of Beasties (BoB) comprises a traditional-style card game with embedded therapeutic activities (e.g. yoga) and aims to raise children’s emotional literacy and promote wellbeing. This session takes you on a journey into the imaginary world of the ‘Beasties’ to demonstrate how children can benefit from this original and simple to deliver, guided learning programme. You will hear the voices of children who have participated in BoB as well as school staff delivery agents and have the chance to try some wellbeing activities for yourself. Preliminary research findings are presented to showcase BoB’s enormous potential as a resource for schools.
