With 29 real life and relatable stories at its heart, this practical resource is designed to help build self-esteem and body confidence in children aged 5-11. Each story is the focus of a ready-to-use lesson plan, covering common issues that affect children such as a lack of body confidence, feeling pressured by peers and worries about puberty. The stories are preceded by guidance on how to introduce the topic and the learning outcomes, and they are followed by a range of activities to reinforce the messages being taught. The stories can either be read aloud to a class or group or photocopied and shared for individual reading. Perfect for use in PSHE lessons with groups of children, or in one-to-one settings in the therapy room or at home, this book is a useful resource for PSHE co-ordinators, teachers, school counsellors, pastoral care teams, youth workers as well as parents.

Review:

A treasure trove of stories for opening up discussions with 5 to 11 year olds about a wide range of issues which may be troubling them. These accessibly short stories about kids 'just like me' are a great resource for teachers and parents alike and are enhanced by guidance notes and questions for exploration for supporting adults. I'll be keeping my copy close to hand and sharing it widely. --Dr Pooky Knightsmith, Child & Adolescent Mental health Specialist and Advisor to the PSHE Association
