"A lovely way to broach difficult topics…"
I found the Eric the Oracle series of books by chance on Amazon whilst looking for a book to help my 10 year old son through dealing with his dad leaving home. Talk about finding hidden gems! They're a really different way of illustrating common childhood problems and ways kids can tackle them. There's 6 different topics in the series, all containing information and life skills embedded into stories in a place called Blockley Bank. Reading them doesn't feel like you're being 'instructed,' and I soon realised my son (and I!) were actually learning some key, very usable life skills whilst being totally absorbed in the story. They're a real find for anyone interested in gently helping their child develop their skills to build their self esteem, insight, confidence and resilience. They're on Facebook @Blockley Bank Books.
