Rainbows in Windows - Think Equal Sample



‘Rainbows in Windows’, co-written with the World Health Organisation, is a story focused on mental health and wellbeing and on how to keep healthy (physically and mentally) when faced with a virus.
 
This story includes a number of practical methods for emotional regulation and discusses complex feelings within an age-appropriate child-centred narrative. Additional features of this particular story include the gratitude to frontline workers, the normalization and regulation of “big feelings”, basic hygiene tips for Early Years children and, as always with Think Equal, illustrative representations of a diverse society.
 
This story is relevant as a Covid-19 response but ultimately has wider messaging and provides tools for children that transcend the context of the
recent pandemic.
