How To Keep Safe: …in a sometimes scary world

Children worry about scary situations. What if I get lost? What if there is a fire? What if…?
‘How To Keep Safe…’ is a book for 4-9-year olds and their parents to share. It’s a gentle, illustrated, rhyming story of a boy, his dog and his family. Together, they talk about what to do in case of getting lost, being in a home fire, or getting caught up in a dangerous event.

The family makes plans around keeping safe, knowing that bad things will probably never, ever happen. But just in case – they’ll know what to do. The book helps ease worry and anxiety in children and opens difficult conversations between parent and child over potential dangers and their feelings connected with this.

Also included is an extensive parent’s guide with suggested questions parents can ask, how to talk about feelings and ideas for making plans and rules together.

‘How To Keep Safe…’ has the power to help worried children, bring families together, and make plans that will them all safe.

Cold Toes at Christmas

Families come in all shapes and sizes. Holidays are often when we try to be together, but it’s not always possible.

In some cases, one or more parent is working over Christmas – nurses, police, sailors, and many more. In other cases, families that once were together are now living apart. In these cases, children may look at Christmas with sadness and longing. But there is hope!

In this delightfully illustrated story, Grandma tells her little ones about a Christmas she remembers, when she was very young, in her home far away. She was feeling sad and lonely and knew her Mum was sad too. She wanted things to be better – and if you throw a wish up to the sky, who knows what might happen?!

A magical story of love, wonder, imagination, hope, and Santa as you’ve never seen him before!

Our lives aren’t always perfect, but if we are loved and if we have hope, if we believe – well, that makes us stronger.

And, especially at Christmas, we all need to believe – don’t we?
