What to Say When You Don’t Know What to Say

The picture book ‘What to Say’ is just the book for parents, when helping their youngster to come to terms with those tricky every day challenging little moments. Life isn’t always easy for a young child. Author Davina Bell has selected more than twenty of the most common situations which give rise to anxiety in preschoolers and preteens. Each beautifully illustrated page aids parents to talk to their child about the perceived difficult situation which has arisen; be it being left out, having feelings hurt, or being different and many more.

Children generally are more willing to express their feelings in the terms of a third person. This book’s charming illustrations give both the parent and child an opportunity to discuss the incident portrayed in a secure loving environment and hence help the child to resolve his/her own problem. 

I highly recommend both parents and teachers to keep this hard backed book as a handy resource in their own personal library.
