Take Five

Niall Breslin (Bressie) is back with another important life lesson for young children. When Freddie sees all the presents his best friend Ben gets for his birthday, he feels a bit sad… Nana teaches Freddie to ‘Take Five’ – to take five minutes and be thankful for everything he has. This gratitude trick is a helpful technique for children dealing with uncomfortable feelings of jealousy.
