THE Mareeba RSL Sub-Branch has celebrated the opening of Mareeba’s new library their own way by donating a set of books written by a well-known children’s author.

The three books, written by author Gina Dawson include Next Door’s Dog is a Veteran’s Dog and Next Door’s Dog is a Therapy Dog. 

These sensitively written, unique children’s books have many messages and lessons for kids to learn. 

This includes education around PTSD and anxiety, invisible disability, the work of veterans and first responders, correct behaviour around Assistance Dogs and most of all the unique bond between people and their dogs. 

We Can Deal With Bullying! Is the third book being donated to the library and it’s theme is just as the title suggests.

Teaching kids that it is not ok to bully and to not be ashamed of asking for help and helps kids maintain self-esteem, develop resilience and manage their reactions.
