Tom the Lion Books

Tom the Lion – our 5 ways to wellbeing books

The New Economics Foundation’s 5 Ways to Wellbeing is a long-established approach to improving physical and mental health through five acts: connect, keep learning, be active, take notice and give. So that children can access this approach in a meaningful and accessible way, our education team here at Raven have been inspired to create a series of 5 stories based on the 5 ways.

About the books

Published in January 2024, the books feature Tom, a lion, and his squirrel friends, Sid and Hazel. The character, Tom, is already part of our product portfolio – our Sleeping Lions biometric device centres around the user enabling Tom the lion to calm down, lower his heart rate and fall asleep. He and his friends learn how each way to wellbeing helps them feel good about themselves and their lives.


The books are suitable for newly independent readers, aged approximately 6 – 8 years old, and can be purchased in English or Welsh. They are available in a conventional font or in Bionic, which is autism friendly.

Published and printed in Wales by Y Lolfa, our books are available to purchase from Y Lolfa or from national retailers at £4.99 each or £20 for the complete set.
