My Big Notebook

Authors: JC & Carla Carlisle
Release Date: Winter 2021

Are you a parent, caregiver, social worker or loved one of an elementary school aged child dealing with:

  • toxic stress
  • anxiety
  • trauma
  • loneliness
  • isolation
  • missing loved ones

My Big Notebook includes:

  • real stories
  • healthy coping mechanisms
  • positive affirmations
  • coloring & journaling pages
  • resources for kids
  • techniques to help children express their feelings in a positive way

For parents:

  • letter to parents from a child and adolescent psychiatrist
  • support for parents

This book has been such a labor of love. To partner with my son and loved ones to put together a notebook for children is a dream come true. I so appreciate the journey.

Note: A “parent” is someone who is in the role of parent, whether temporary (like a foster parent) or permanent (like adoptive parent or parent with custody).

Praise for My Big Notebook:

This book is needed…


As a person who has written about the trials and triumphs of youth, this book is needed more than ever for young people. And as a father in today’s world, I’m excited that Carla has decided to continue to bring life to her personal story, through the gift of her creative expression.
