It’s another peaceful day in the village for the Mood Bears – until Happy Bear spots a yellow cloud on the horizon and knows someone needs her help. The cloud takes Happy Bear to Amie, who feels lonely and sad after moving to a new flat far away from her friends. She has no one to celebrate her birthday with her, either. So, Happy Bear throws a party for Amie’s big day and invites some very special guests to remind her that she is never alone.
• According to ONS figures from 2018, 1 in 10 children “often” feel lonely in the UK.
• Amie’s Party is a sensitively written and beautifully illustrated book that deals with loneliness, as well as change, both of which children may silently struggle with.
• The book features the popular Mood Bears, created by Joanna Proud. Plush versions of the book’s characters are available for added comfort and connection with the story.
• Author Iain Lauchlan created the Bafta-winning TV programme Tweenies.
