Meet Little Monster
About the program.
“Meet Little Monster” was developed by NAMI Washington State in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, when children were suddenly cut off from their friends, teachers, coaches, and school counselors. Children experienced big and powerful feelings without the community support and reassurance that they had access to before quarantine. The coloring and activity book was designed to help foster dialogue between children and the safe adults in their lives. The book was written and designed by Sophia Nicholson Keener and illustrated by Honor Heindl. It also includes a list of mental health resources.
