ABOUT LOU LOU ROSE
The world today can be a complicated and confusing place for children, with childhood anxiety and mental health issues on the rise, Lou Lou Rose aim to navigate an increasingly difficult world for children to grow up in. We are passionate about creating books, animations and other means of promoting positive mental health and well being. We aim to encourage children to love and accept themselves by equipping them with practical self-care ideas that will stay with them throughout life. Through a variety of media such as picture books, affirmation cards and animations, we offer families a refuge from today’s fast-paced world by creating a space for meditation, communication and stillness. We feel that by helping children to understand their thoughts and feelings and by teaching them to care for their mental health from an early age they will be better prepared for life's difficulties and be more resilient to anxiety, stress and mental health issues as they grow older.
