Felix the lion is making us feel funny. When our hands get all wobbly, our feet stick to the ground, our chest needs more air and our heart goes BOOM that's when we need to help Felix calm down.

Help us to print this special story written for Learning in Reach on Mandela Day and gift them to children who live with trauma on a day-to-day basis. 

In this season of giving, Learning in Reach aims to print a book for every pre-primary and foundation stage learner in Lavender Hill. The books will be gift wrapped as special presents, personalised with your special messages for the recipients.

Currently being illustrated, we would like to print at the start of the 2020 school year.

Pledge your R30 towards a book and our volunteer team will wrap it on your behalf. e-mail your personalised message to literacy@learninginreach.org.za.

Have a young child at home? Why not buy one and donate one - so both children benefit from this message of how to calm big feelings.
