Ten-year-old Annie knows what she loves: being on the beach with her dog, Echo. There, by the sea, everything that feels cross and sad and scared and mad seems to drift away.

If you read this book and find it helpful, I would be so grateful if you could share, comment and review. It really helps to spread the word because coming to understand highly sensitive children can transform lives.

For Annie, feeling cross and sad and scared and mad is common.

Annie is a highly sensitive child, and that means she experiences the world a little differently. That can be hard to handle, at home and at school.

But being different can also be very beautiful, as Annie will discover. With Grandpa and Mum and her little brother Tim, she can find a way to work through her difficult feelings. To let her worries wash away like pebbles on the shore.

In this gentle story, authors Lucy and James offer reassurance and inspiration for the highly sensitive child who sees the world not in black and white, but every colour of the rainbow.

What a lovely story, full of tender moments with the struggle of the character ( a young child with an emotional disability). It is a wonderful insight into how the normal struggles of young childhood can affect a person much more profoundly when they have highly sensitive child syndrome.

Happily, our young heroine found a way of coping and the story was wonderfully described by the author. A big thumbs up!
