These 10 beautifully-illustrated storybooks along with 10 practical guidebooks, (20 books in total), enable teachers, parents and professionals to help children aged 4-12 connect with unresolved feelings affecting their behaviour.
Each guide focuses on a particular feeling, with exercises and ideas to help children think about, express and focus on that feeling to the point of resolution. The illustrated stories are designed to be told alongside the guide, but can be used independently to promote discussion and help to show children they are not alone.
Titles included in the set are:
Helping Children of Troubled Parents and Monica Plum's Horrid Problem.
Helping Children Locked in Rage and Hate and How Hattie Hated Kindness.
Helping Children Pursue Their Hopes and Dreams and A Pea Called Mildred.
Helping Children Who Are Anxious or Obsessional and Willy and the Wobbly.
Helping Children Who Bottle Up Their Feelings and A Nifflenoo Called Nevermind.
Helping Children Who Have Hardened Their Hearts or Become Bullies and A Wibble Called Bipley.
Helping Childen Who Yearn for Someone They Love and The Frog Who Longed for The Moon to Smile.
Helping Children With Fear and Teenie Weenie in a Too Big World.
