Meet Clara Clownfish...

Clara Clownfish lives amongst the crystal clear waters of Clownfish Cove.

The day has finally come for Clara to explore away from her reef with her friend Bessie Butterflyfish. However, there are so many dangers to be faced out in the ocean. Will Clara’s curiosity save the day?

Why is Curiosity Important?

Growth Vs Fixed Mindset

Does your child ask a lot of questions? This is a great thing! 

Children’s endless questions are a sign that they are wondering about their world. Maybe they expect you to give them the answers to everything.

Clara Clownfish helps children learn to ask AND answer question themselves by looking for patterns and connections. She helps children feel great pride in noticing and figuring things out for themselves.

Change Their Inner Voice Through Storytelling

Curiosity plays such an important factor in life because it means a child is self-motivated to find out their own answers. Rather than being passive, they are actively engaged in finding answers, making connections and forging links between ideas. A curious learner is an excited learner!

‘Be Curious, Clara Clownfish‘ is a thrilling adventure, which shows children how interesting and necessary it is to pay attention, watch, listen and be observant.

With Clara’s help, gradually, a child’s inner voice changes from, ‘Tell me how to do it,’ to, ‘I wonder how I could do this?’ ‘What do I know already to help me?’ ‘What patterns are there?’ ‘How does this work?’

Let Clara Clownfish help your child become an active problem-solver and fully engage with their own learning!

What Our Users Say…

Orla was so excited when she received her new book bundle! The books were so bold and vibrant; she couldn't wait to see the pictures inside. We read, 'Don't give up, Sadie Spider' first. The story was engaging and carried a clear simple message of not giving up. It is clever how each book involved characters from other books in Cape Ability. I definitely recommend these books to read with your child.

We already have Bobby bee, Tommy turtle and Cooper crab, my 5 year old absolutely adores these books. We like them so much we’ve ordered 4 more. The quality of the books is amazing, easy to hold for both adults and children. The details in the pictures is so good, you can tell time and effort has gone into each one. We can't wait for the next in the series to come out!

Support Your Child's Mental Health with Cape Ability

Cape Ability was created by a Primary School Teacher with over 20 years experience.  Our stories really speak to little minds, with each motivational character teaching children to develop a healthy inner voice. Each beautifully illustrated book has a guiding principle which is demonstrated by a key character throughout the story. The books help develop a shared language between parent and child, allowing you to help them through life’s little challenges.

We live in an uncertain and changing world.  At Cape Ability, we believe every child should be equipped with an inner voice that helps them to stay happy and healthy.
