Sammy the Sea Squirt – external campaign assets
Our Head of Education, Ezra Hewing has written a fun, psychologically informed storybook, showing the benefits of exercise on mental health. It’s called Sammy the Sea Squirt, and every Reception aged child (four-to-five-year-olds) in Suffolk will be given one from September. We want to teach children at a young age how to look after their mental health, which is extremely important, especially at the moment.
Join us for the launch of our published Sammy the Sea Squirt book
Be the first to hear readings of Sammy the Sea Squirt on Saturday 25th September 2021 at libraries across Suffolk. The book author, Ezra Hewing and our Children and Young People’s Trainer, Louise Harris will be reading Sammy the Sea Squirt for the first time to public audiences. Hear about the adventures of Sammy the Sea Squirt and friends who learn how movement helps their brain.
We will also be hosting movement sessions (depending on location) and drawing and colouring fun for the whole family. Our book illustrator, Emma Graham will be at Ipswich library to share her expertise. No need to book, just come along. Find us at:
- Ipswich library (Northgate St, Ipswich IP1 3DE): 10am – 11.30am
- Mildenhall library (Sheldrick Way, IP28 7JX): 1.15pm – 2pm
- Lowestoft library (Clapham Rd S, NR32 1DR): 2.30pm – 3.30pm.
- Bury St Edmunds library (2B St Andrew’s St N, IP33 1TZ): 3pm-4pm

You can now pre-order a copy of Sammy the Sea Squirt
As we’re on the way to achieving our aim of giving every Reception aged child a copy of Sammy the Sea Squirt, we now want to enable the wider public to purchase the book, to help their children to learn about the benefits of movement on their mental health.
