“Lucy’s Blue Day” – children’s mental health book

UPDATED to include YouTube link to the animation, and the Soundcloud link to the author interview on The Braw and the Brave.


I’ve just stumbled across this book which has been written by Scottish author Chris Duke (thanks to The Braw and the Brave for sharing the Facebook post!)

From the Lucy’s Blue Day Facebook page:

The book has also been shared as a short video with narration by Lorraine Kelly, showcasing the illustrations by Federica Bartolini.

I have no connection with the creators of this book other than having a keen interest in Mental Health Awareness as an educator of young people myself, so I’ve copied the links below purely so you can find out more if you are interested.

A deceptively simple story with a powerful message.


And here is the The Braw and the Brave podcast, a full interview with author Chris Duke.
