It helps  to explore families, feelings and to build empathy and other important life-skills. 
Each adventure focuses on key stages in a child’s life and covers topics that children may find challenging or are worried about. The aim being to allow them to discuss these situations with adults and also to think about how they would cope in a similar situation or with key life events.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

GABRIELLE FENNER

KS1 TEACHER

This book is well written, enabling children, teachers, carers and parents to explore not only the subject of adoption but the emotions and feelings some children experience during their primary education.  It demonstrates sibling connection, a roller-coaster of emotions and ultimately how setting your mind on a goal can help you achieve it.  An invaluable PHSE resource
