Overview

Children entering therapy have many questions and many fears. And this book has many answers! In large print and clear terms, using Margaret Scott's jubilant, witty illustrations, the book explains concepts such as confidentiality (&#34that's the only really big word in this book!"), the special bond between therapists and child, and the ways that therapy can help children feel better and help their problems become smaller and smaller!

Bestseller! Over 100,000 copies sold!
