Our children undergo various changes throughout their lives-sometimes they are small changes that they can easily overcome, and sometimes the changes are quite substantial and are difficult for our children to cope with. Especially this year with all the changes happening as a result of this pandemic, our children have had to adjust to many more changes that have posed a challenge to them and to parents all over the world who are trying to help their children cope and adapt.
As a mother of two children and an Occupational Therapist who works with children, the author has seen firsthand the positive impact that stories can have on children's ability to make sense of their experiences. This book highlights several of the changes that children can undergo throughout their lives such as moving to a new school or neighbourhood, loved ones moving away or becoming ill, changes that happen within families (i.e. a parent traveling), in addition to a segment on the changes children have needed to adapt to during this pandemic (i.e. mask wearing, and social distancing). Story-telling is such a powerful tool in helping children understand, process, and cope with their experiences. It helps them feel less alone and helps them learn coping strategies in a gentle manner.
