When a book might help

Books can help with all sorts of difficulties faced by children and families. By sharing a story based on a particular theme, you can gently introduce new concepts to your child and tackle their fears in a safe way.

By discussing what happened in the story and how the characters behaved, children can explore the issues and gain coping skills and new understanding.
