In The Purrfect Pawse: A little book to help children pause, stretch and be grateful, Avril McDonald returns with some of the colourful, lovable characters from her Feel Brave series to help nurture young children’s physical and mental well-being through a combination of activity and poetry.


The Purrfect Pawse uses rhythm, rhyme and repetition to encourage children to take a pause, stretch out and unwind with Catreen the cat. Its beautiful verse brings to life pleasant imagery that connects them with the wonders of nature. The gentle stretching activity is an ideal example of a ‘daily dose’ of emotional well-being that children can effortlessly learn and incorporate into their day.


The book also features the enchanting poem ‘Stars in the Night’, in which Wolfgang the wolf takes children on a magical starry journey into their minds to think about all the people, things and places they love, stir them around in a cup and drink them up like hot chocolate. ‘Stars in the Night’ not only warms children’s hearts but also helps them get into a powerful, positive state of mind.


Together, Catreen and Wolfgang offer both a positive message and an accessible level of activity that teachers can embed as part of their personal, social and health education (PSHE) objectives, and that parents can adopt for use at home with their children at any time (e.g. around the kitchen table, before bedtime).


Designed for use with 4- to 7-year-olds.
Avril McDonald has a Diploma of Education from Wellington College of Education, New Zealand, where she trained as a primary school teacher majoring in music and dance. She has had a varied career in digital entertainment. She launched Feel Brave to help teachers and parents find solutions to help children learn to deal with their emotions and to reach their potential.
