”You are important, Pink” and ”You are a real friend, Pink” are the two first volumes of a series addressed to children and parents aimed at helping to boost children’s self-esteem and mental resilience. They teach how to deal with difficult emotions, build relationships with peers, and acquire a sense of identity.
Don’t silence, underestimate or ignore children, just make them feel IMPORTANT. Make sure that their issues, emotions, and experiences are not lost in the race course of hectic life.
It is a great introduction to coming of age.
“Hi, I’m Pink!”
“Hi, Pink. Who are you?”
“I do not know.”
“How come you don’t know? Take a moment.”
“I’m just like everyone else.”
“No, you are unique.”
Did you know that you are unique, too? We all are. There is no one like you anywhere in the world. That is why you are so unique. It does not mean perfect. You have virtues and defects. We all do. They build us. They make us valuable just the way we are. So is Pink – your new friend.
Pink is a small creature that keeps growing. He is a bit shy and is not always sure if what he thinks and feels is right. He is afraid of his weaknesses because he doesn’t know yet that he should accept them. He wonders if he is as important as others. He watches himself and tries to make friends with himself.
Help Pink to believe in himself, and he will help you to do the same!
Pink has three friends: Bingo, Leo, and Lulka. They spend time together, play together, and invite each other to sleepovers. So far they haven’t thought why, but that’s just how it is – they are important to each other and they show it to themselves in many different ways.
Because a friend is just someone important to you, who is interested in you, who knows what you like and don’t like, and with whom you can be yourself. Who tells you about himself and listens carefully when you talk. It’s someone who cares for you. And who you care about.
Help Pink discover what friendship is and let him be your friend!
