The third picture book in a new series developed with leading Australian mindfulness organisation, Smiling Mind. Noisy Tom is the third book in the five-part mindfulness-informed series, developed in collaboration with Smiling Mind, Australia's leading not-for-profit organisation in the pre-emptive mental health space. Tom is loud. Everything he does makes noise. At the park, Tom discovers different people have different ways of playing - loud and quiet, fast and slow. Tom tries out all the different ways, but realises there's only one way to show his feelings . . . his way. This fun story celebrates all the different ways that people communicate their feelings.
