Henry & Henrietta Heartbeat – The children’s book series teaching children the importance of kindness!
Henry & Henrietta Heartbeat are two fun loving, happy go lucky characters in the form of giant red hearts! They are bright, fun and most importantly they are always kind. Their motto ‘it’s cool to be kind’ helps transmit the growing importance of acting with kindness always… towards each other, ourselves and to the world.
Through their stories we learn how to act in a number of common scenarios children find themselves in, at home, in the classroom, on the sports field, at the playground and so on, each story depicts a situation of conflict, confusion or uncertainty and demonstrates how to act in the kindest possible way. Henry & Henrietta are the messengers! Pro-kindness, anti-bullying mascots, they are clear references for children as educators of inclusion, acceptance, tolerance, friendship and kindness in all its forms.
Children’s most fundamental behaviour patterns are formed between the ages of 2- 6, key years for PSED (personal, social, emotional, development). In order to tackle the worrying problems of mental health and wellbeing in older children and teens, we need to address issues at the root. Teaching kindness and making it a way of life at these critical formative ages, is paramount and the first step to positive change.
