A huge congratulations to our very own Áine Murray on the publication of her book,
‘The Pain in the Chest’.
We here in Ashbourne ETNS are very proud of Áine’s achievement.
The Pain in the Chest follows a girl through her childhood, and shows us how anxiety has affected her. Using beautiful illustrations alongside a story told through rhyme, children will learn that when we talk about anxiety, we can find help, and the anxiety loses it’s power.
This book reaches all primary school ages and is an excellent resource for adults to start the conversation about mental health with their young person. It introduces the language of anxiety, allows for reflection on what anxiety might look like, and normalises talking about our feelings. It is engaging, inclusive and most of all, important.
