The Big Book of Blob Trees features 70 different Blob trees that can be used as prompts to explore feelings. This unique collection of Blob trees with its range of different Blob characters is a fabulous way of opening up discussions about feelings and developing understanding of emotions, empathy and self-awareness. The trees show a variety of different scenarios that people may relate to, and can be used as a springboard for conversations with people of any age group.
This second edition includes a new set of Blob trees relevant to many topical issues, including Blob trees themed around autism, eating, free speech, anxiety and smartphones. Each Blob tree comes with suggested questions that can be used to guide the discussion; for example: Which Blob do you feel like? Which Blob seems happiest? Which Blob confuses you? Which Blob annoys you, and why? Which Blob would you like to feel like? Offering handy photocopiable resources, The Big Book of Blob Trees provides a unique way to initiate discussion and gently approach emotive topics with individuals or groups.
