Review by adoptive mum of 4 children in Adoption Today
I enjoyed reading them and sharing them with my children and I would recommend them as a tool for talking to children...it allowed us all to talk about our feelings in a safe and non-threatening way.

...they're beautifully produced and very child friendly.
...they are very moving and sensitively written.
Jo North, psychotherapistBACP Children & Young People
This group of six books is designed to help looked after children have a sense of being understood as they journey through statutory care. It is an excellent resource for school counsellors, foster carers, adoptive parents, psychotherapists working with children, and for adoption support workers and guardians ... The books are an excellent way to support children in life story work and also to remind substitute carers that the children they care for have complicated inner lives that affect them mentally and emotionally... The illustrations in the books are exceptionally good. i was enchanted by the way that the artwork illuminated the emotion and changing moods of the story... This book gives a real sense to the child that someone is trying to understand what they are experiencing. I found the books moving and was impressed that they tackled such a difficult subject in a a very matter-of-fact way... I highly recommend this book for anyone having anything to do with children in care. I think it could save you a lot of work and get to the point with a child very quickly.
