Rebecca J Palmer

Author, Illustrator

Rebecca Palmer is the author/illustrator of the picture book, Monkey Mind, a gentle narrative about the worrying thoughts that cause anxiety. Illustrated with drypoint etchings and watercolour, Monkey Mind is a visual exploration of mindfulness and growth mindset for children, their caregivers and adults.

Like many primary teachers, Rebecca has found that the competitive nature of our world leads many children to believe that mistakes lead to failure, rather than opportunities to learn and grow. She is also a fierce advocate for teaching children explicitly about the power of visual language in picture books, workshopping with children and adults on critical thinking and how to decode hidden or implicit messages in the texts that surround them. Her sessions are interactive, writing and arts based - and fun for all!
