Lucy’s Blue Day

For Human Rights Week, children’s author Chris Duke reads from his book Lucy’s Blue Day. Chris is a massive supporter of mental health awareness, in particular children. He wants them to know it’s ok not to be ok, and to encourage them to talk about their emotions with someone they trust. His session focuses on feelings using Lucy’s magical colour changing hair giving the children a language to use to help them identify their emotions effectively.
