“It is hugely important to me that children are able to connect with and understand their feelings.”
Do you believe that understanding and accepting our emotional wellbeing is key to fostering a greater connection with yourself? Do you long to help the children in your life in this way, and enjoy using books as a way to create this connection and facilitate discussion?
Why not read on to explore the Katie-Jane book series – written to explore different concepts and to address some of the feelings that may surface surrounding them.
All of these books are written from the perspectives I have gained through my life and experiences with selective mutism, shyness, low self esteem and moving beyond my previous limitations. You can read more about the creation of who Katie-Jane is here>>>
- These books are currently available as a complete set of three for just NZ$15 >>>
A story about being shy, fitting in and finding out who you are.
When Katie-Jane meets a chameleon, she thinks she is just like him – until a bright and bold parrot comes along and stirs things up for her.
Join Katie-Jane on her fun adventure of self-discovery as she moves past being ‘shy’ to realise who she really is.
A story about embracing change.
While Katie-Jane is bored and longing for change, she unexpectedly meets three animals who have suddenly transformed. Through the story, Katie-Jane reassures the butterfly, the frog and the snake that the changes they are experiencing are simply a part of their nature. In turn, the animals reassure her that the change she craves will come her way too.
A story about communication and self-expression.
After finding herself speechless when asked a question in class, someone suggests that maybe the cat took Katie-Jane’s tongue. And so begins this adventure.
On her way Katie-Jane observes a rabbit, a hive of bees and a bird, who each communicate in different ways. Eventually the cat makes its appearance, and Katie-Jane makes some understandings.
