This is Margot Sunderland’s bestselling series of therapeutic stories for children, each accompanied by a professional guidebook. The practical guidebooks 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 bought and used independently.
