Each guidebook focuses on key feelings and is written in a very user-friendly language, covering the most relevant psychotherapeutic and neurobiological theories for the feeling.

If a child is to benefit from the full therapeutic potential of the storybooks, then we strongly recomend that the accompanying guidebooks are used in conjunction with the stories. We advise reading the accompanying guide book before reading the story with the child, which will enable you to come to the child from a far more informed postion, and thus offer a far richer and more empathetic response.
