A Story About Learning New Ways to Feel Calm by Jane Evans and Izzy Bean

Once upon a time there was a Little Meerkat with an important job to do. Today was the day when Little Meerkat finally took a turn at being the lookout Meerkat – watching out for dangers to protect the Meerkat gang. It was all going well until Little Meerkat fell asleep and woke up to find everyone had disappeared! This sent little Meerkat into a very big panic. With help from Small Elephant and Mini Monkey can Little Meerkat calm down and find the missing Meerkats?
