I have one nose, two eyes and two ears. My feet can take me a long, long way. Sometimes I am very happy and at other times so sad. But when I'm cuddled I feel cosy.... One little girl is going on a journey, but wherever she is in the world, she is just like you. This beautiful story, woven through with a surprise, is full of empathy, warmth - and hope.
Sophy doesn't know how to fit in. She tries to talk at school but the words get stuck in her throat and everyone laughs and whispers behind her back. But one day, an extraordinary thing happens... Sophy is whisked away to a magical snowy land where she meets a wolf and her cub. The unlikely trio roll, run and howl together, playing happily in the snow. Sophy has found friends and nothing can ruin her day... until a big, angry bear appears. But Sophy finally finds her voice and finds the courage she's been looking for all along. This is a story of overcoming the isolating feeling of being shy, finding friends and most importantly, finding your voice.

Taking time to listen to a bird's song on the breeze. Taking time to gather up the blossom dancing free. Taking time to imagine the deep sounds of the sea. Taking time to cherish you . . . and cherish me. This poem is inspired by principles of mindfulness and invites children around the world to experience the wonders of nature and home.
