Hare & Ruru: A Quiet Moment
WINNER Russell Clark Award for Illustration - 2021 NZ Book Awards for Children and Young Adults. WINNER Storylines Notable Book Award 2021.
This is the story of Hare, who struggles with an un-named mental malady self described as ‘noise’. Noise could be runaway thoughts, voices in Hare’s head, or loud feelings and general anxiety. Hare goes on a journey to try and find a solution. Just when Hare thinks there’s no hope a friend, Ruru, flies calmly down and gives a suggestion.
Hare ultimately feels better after doing three things:
• Talking to someone
• Focusing on breathing
• Connecting to nature
This gentle story is for anybody who suffers from noises, anxiety or loud feelings.
