This read out loud book is the second of Healing Hearts of Nature: A series of therapeutic books for children. The series provides the opportunity for parents, teachers, and childcare workers to discuss in a non-threatening and interactive manner experiences such as:
* low self-esteem
* single parenting
* interpersonal and familial problems
* physical safety
The books may also include discussion questions and "write-your-own-stories" templates.
While the first therapeutic book for children published in 2009, Healing Hearts of Nature:
Five Therapeutic Fables for Children, addresses intra-individual dynamics, such as low self-esteem, rebelliousness, and depression, the present book addresses family and peer-group dynamics. Used together, the books encompass interventions at individual, social, and cultural levels. In summary, this series is a head start for prevention and management of some of the most common struggles children experience.
