For the Parents & Carers!
What Parents are Saying!
Teresa – A mother of two young boys from Surrey: I sat down with the boys last night to read some more of the book, and do the activities. My husband was watching us, and he said to me “look how engaged the boys are, I've never seen them like this over a book.” It was lovely to teach the boys to express their emotions and ask for help. I also found out something about our son, he told me, if he was feeling sad (at school), he would wait for one of his friends to notice, and they tell his teacher for him, or ask him to join in their games. This was really insightful and we spoke about how it would be different if he could tell someone. Thank you so much, we are really enjoying the story, and are up to the word search page, our son loves word searches, so he was thrilled when he got them all right!
An Endorsement from Cheryl Baker
Cheryl Baker: I think The Secret in the Rainbow should be included in the school curriculum because it shows that children are different in every way - some lack confidence, feel they are not as good or as important as other children and are singled out etc. This book highlights the fact that all children are different and deal with things in different ways. The book would definitely help children with their mental health and they would be able to relate and learn from it. It would go a long way to help children understand why they feel like they do and would show them that they are not alone.
Believe You Can! Author Sue Williams
Sue Williams: By following my intuition, I was led to connect with Tammy Clark and Ella Norman who do wonderful work with primary school children. It made perfect sense to me that we came together as our goals are very similar. As a woman in my fifties I understand what it is like to be raised in a time when it was common to shut down our emotions. We were often valued for meeting other’s expectations and by being quiet and conforming. Tammy and Ella are seeking to bring happiness, confidence and freedom of expression to a new generation, growing up in a world where the opportunities to find your own voice and to be heard are far greater than ever before. I am seeking to help those that have already grown, and to bring them the confidence they desire. Believe You Can!

“Give me the confidence to believe in myself,
learn to use my voice positively,
and understand my emotions.
In return, I will shine brighter than the stars”
UR Fantastic is our brand new client and those inspirational words may be found across their website.
UR Fantastic produces books and courses for primary school- aged children. The Secret in the Rainbow is a beautifully written and illustrated series of books — the first in the series is already in print - which have been lovingly crafted by their creators, Tammy Clark and Ella Norman. The books and the courses that UR Fantastic provide will help children with their general skills, and most importantly will enhance their self-esteem; help them to shine brighter than the stars, as it were.
Print2Please is delighted to be asked to help Tammy to bring her vision to as many children, their parents and teachers as possible. Our extensive print experience, publishing record (a recent enterprise but learning fast!) communication skills (you be the judge) and above all our belief and passion for UR Fantastic’s vision are why Tammy has entrusted us to be a partner in her very important work.
We believe that self-esteem is the main building block of good mental health. As an active campaigner, I recognize that to improve the way children with mental health issues are treated in this country, it is essential that they are in good mental health in the first place. This is why The Secret in the Rainbow is so important. Children love the stories and assemblies, which is why it works so well.

Here you will find my message Tammy and Ella which is Margret Mead’s inspirational comment, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." We love what you are doing and we are so pleased that you want us to help you do it!
