How It Works
1. PICK A BOOK
Select a book that fits with the child's upcoming life event.
2. CREATE THE CHARACTER
Name and design the character to help the child see themselves in the story.
WHY IS PERSONALISATION IMPORTANT?
The child recognises themselves in the story and immediately feels engaged.
The story creates a space for the child to explore how they may feel and act in that moment.
It prompts children to ask questions and develop a helpful understanding of what might happen next.
The child sees themselves achieving important milestones and their future successes celebrated. This promotes confidence and helps children feel ready!
WHY WE BELIEVE IN OUR STORIES?
Developed by a Teacher & Child Psychologist who understand the importance of creating a safe, non judgemental space to talk about important moments in a child's life.
Personalised books are very powerful in helping a child to engage and connect to the story.
The child is the only character, so they are truly at the centre of the story.
Inspired by Carol Gray's Social Stories, our stories are simple. They aim to describe what to expect in situations, events, and activities. The walk- through style help children familiarise themselves with upcoming situations and comfort possible worries they may feel about these changes or events.
The stories encourage meaningful conversations between children and grown- ups.
Every book is supported by Experts Ideas, where grown ups can go to find helpful free advice relating to that topic.
