    Congratulations Karen for writing such a fantastic children’s book giving children encouragement and empowerment so that they will feel better and perform better. I gladly support your new book, “Bailey beats the Blah” and wish you continued success with it.

  • I think you opened an excellent subject for children. Once people understand this kind of thing, they do better in accepting it and getting help. It’s like Tim Lott said ‘Children are beautiful because they possess something that we have all lost – the quality of innocence.’

    Your work brings awareness of this subject & with it, hopefully more understanding. Like any subject, unless you have knowledge, stereotypes are relied on and the negative judgement and misunderstanding they sadly produce

  • Thanks Pam for your supportive comment and understanding of mental health and stereo types in mental illness… Good luck on the Blog Tour … Karen 🙂

  • Terri Lamerton

    Hi Karen! Many many congratulations on all your success so far and for your courage and commitment in bringing greater awareness to our precious young ones. I really think one of the most important things we can do is to be wonderful role models ourselves and talk openly about our feelings and how we beat our own blah times. Your book is certainly a wonderful way to start this kind of conversation! I believe children learn so much from what they see, as well as from what they are told and so if for instance we say “I’m feeling such and such” and then they see us do something that helps us feel good, it goes in deep! Thanks beautiful!

  • Hi Terri,

  • Melissa Walsh

    Think it’s wonderful your book helps kids explore their feelings in this area and for them to understand such feelings are ok. Giving little people validation – a sense of self belief and self acceptance. A wonderful achievement and contribution to the world

  • Hi Melissa, Thanks for checking out my Blog tour and leaving your very supportive comment on Bailey Beats the Blah … Karen 🙂

  • I think the hand illustrations are wonderful. For recently published children’s books, there is only one other called “I Met a Monster on My Way to School One Day” – a 3+ age book, that has hand illustrated covers & not photo graphics, that I know of. So much more authentic & attracting!

    The topic is very important! As I’m sure you know, children are not born innately knowing various coping mechanisms for sadness, anxiety, worry, anger…..they need to be taught how to cope w/ their feelings and it is best when it is role-modeled for them, if the adults in their lives could remain aware of that. When they aren’t taught healthy ways to cope, they then use negative coping mechanisms such as bullying, using drugs to deal w/ the pain, acting out & getting in trouble w/ the schools or law enforcement making them “At-Risk” Teens for school failure or drop-out. Empowering children with effective skills is a large contribution to lessening the depression rate amongst our children. For that, you are making a major contribution to raising the awareness level among the parents, educators, and children. It is being received very well by those that have read it and reviewed it! Thank you Karen Tyrell for all your hard work. 🙂

  • Thanks Renee for coming here sharing the merits of Bailey Beats the Blah and how Bailey can be used to empower young lives … Karen 🙂

  • As a Child and Youth Worker and Mental Health Speaker, I am always excited to discover resources to help children develop increased resiliency, mental wellness and understanding. This sounds like a wonderful book! Looking forward to reading it someday and using it in classroom settings and one-on-one!
