Big Hid by Roisin Swales
is a great picture book that promotes self-management, wellbeing, friendship and compassion.

Big and Little ‘are a great team’, they do everything together – climbing, chewing, dressing up and racing each other. “But one day something changed. Big didn’t want to climb or chew. He didn’t want to do anything! Then Big hid!” 

Little doesn’t understand why Big has retreated into his shell and won’t come out. Little tries to persuade him to come out but Big still hid. “Little missed Big very much. So Little gave Big a great big hug… and just like that, Big didn’t feel like hiding anymore.”
