About

Books for a Child's Happy Mind by Dr. Loredana P. McCarty

I am hoping to spread awareness of mental health with a combination of imagination, education, humor, rhymes and fun ! Through the use of narrative storytelling and some poetry I intend to give children insight into emotions, their imaginations and coping mechanisms to help them be happy and calm.  My goal is to reach the minds and hearts of little ones through my stories, poems and meditations.

There is a huge lack of children's books with mental health themes. I have written 12 stories and poems which will spark the minds of readers, and with your support, I hope to publish them all!

 I am a Navy wife, mother of twins, and psychologist who loves to write and teach others' how to have a positive mindset and strategies for healthy interaction with others.  Much of my inspiration for these stories was drawn from teaching my patients and my children how to cope with feelings and live a happy life.  Your support helps with funding the books for publishing including illustrations, editing, marketing and in the future, developing a mobile app. Thanks for your support! You can follow my illustrator, Jamison Miller, and I on instagram @achildshappymind

Risks and challenges

I am hoping to reach as many young readers as I can. There is a great need for books and apps geared toward mental health education for children that give children hope. Marketing the book requires great efforts and funds. It is a future goal to build an app once I have several books published and well received!
