(A story for fearful children) One day Teenie Weenie finds himself in a scrumbly screechy place. It is full of noises and crashes and things that swoop and scratch. The worse it gets, the smaller Teenie Weenie feels. After a while, he feels so small that the tiniest insect tries to eat him up. Teenie Weenie feels terrified and desperately alone. But after a while along strolls a Wip-Wop bird who invites Teenie Weenie to come and have a chocolate muffin in his tree house.
(A story for children locked in rage or hate) Hattie lives by herself on an island. She likes anything hard and spiky. Lots of people try to bring kindness to Hattie, but each time she is horrid to them, smashing and spoiling everything they try to do for her. So after a while they all stop coming to the island. Hattie is very alone. So she sits by the water's edge and tries to figure out why she hates love and loves hate. She thinks it must be because she is a bad girl.
(A story to help children pursue their hopes and dreams) Mildred is a pea with dreams. She has great plans for her pea life. However, people are always telling her that dreams are pointless as she is just an ordinary pea like so many other peas. Eventually, with the help of a kind person along the way, Mildred ends up doing exactly what she has always dreamed of doing.
The titles in this extraordinary series are a vital resource. Nine practical guidebooks, each with an accompanying beautifully illustrated storybook, have been written to help children (aged 4-12) think about and connect with their feelings. These guides and stories enable teachers, parents and professionals to recognise the unresolved feelings behind a child's behaviour and to respond correctly to help. Each guidebook focuses on a key feeling and is written in very user-friendly language. The exercises, tasks and ideas for things to say and do are specifically designed to help children think about, express and process the feeling to the point…
This accompanying story will help you work with children whose emotional wellbeing is being upset by troubled parents. They may be: Alarmed by their parent rather than experiencing them as a place of safety and solace, harbouring a mass of painful feelings about a chaotic and disturbing world, left self-helping, which all too often means drugs, drink, self-harm, depression, anxiety, eating disorders or problems with anger in the teenage years. Age: 4-12
