  • Full of useful child-friendly tools

    by on

    This is an an excellent book to help children navigate social situations and give parents some direction in how to support kids. Each chapter is based on the skills of a different bird (so some of the birds are American and not relevant in Australia) and then broken down into a 3 - 4 different tools and techniques. It is an easy read but packed full of great techniques and examples to work through with your child.
