This book is written by a Child Psychiatrist and parent with first-hand experience in helping kids cope using homemade books.
The author suggests writing your own simple books ensures the message you want to give your child is uniquely yours and as children mature this becomes a collaborative opportunity to stoop and think about what is going on and how best to deal with it.
This step-by-step guide provides insight into the importance of repetition when encouraging children to accept new situations in a low key, non-judgmental way; it can also help children to describe their behaviour and label their feelings.
Visual examples are included in this book as well as numerous suggestions to tackle topics, such as bedtime struggles, growing up, illness and death, divorce and starting school.
More ideas are also included "if your child hates books"!
Very interesting for parents and professionals and highly recommended.
