This brand-new Series takes a challenging or significant life event as the focus for each story and aims to help children understand and normalise the range of emotions they may experience, and recognise and manage ‘big’ and ‘difficult’ feelings.

It is important for children to know that facing difficult situations, and the strong emotions which they can elicit, is part of life. How we cope with these events often depends on our mental health and the coping strategies we have learned.

These stories take situations that are familiar to children and use fictional characters to create some emotional distance, in order to consider emotional responses and support the safe exploration of coping strategies and problem solving. Each story comes with a workbook and guidance notes to assist the use of these highly practical and engaging resources.
