Author(s): Rebekah Lipp; Craig Phillips
Aroha knows that nature is there for you and for me. Spending time out in nature makes her feel all kinds of wonderful emotions.
Throughout Aroha Knows, Aroha and her friends experience our amazing world and this picture book explores how it can benefit our wellbeing. Aroha Knows encourages children to feel connected to and find meaning in nature.
Bex Lipp was co-founder of award-winning business Awesome Inc, which started around creating gratitude journals, and was a great base to launch into publishing children’s books. Bex also co-wrote the book Finding Gratitude. Bex’s own personal story of struggles with mental health issues led her to come up with the idea of making a picture book around the emotions associated with anxiety. With a vast experience of running businesses and charitable projects, Bex Lipp wants to sprinkle happiness as far as she can, because from her own personal experience, she knows gratitude works. She lives in Taupo in the central North Island of New Zealand with her husband, three boys, and numerous fur babies.
