My Big Moments is a series of picture books that help children cope with challenges, changes and milestones they may face in their early life. The books are written for children aged 2-7 years in consultation with experts in child psychology, play therapy and neuroscience education. They empower children with language and ideas, developing resilience for handling the challenges, changes and milestones that will shape their lives. As adult and child sit and read together, the books start conversations about how to navigate some of life’s little bumps in the road, turning tricky situations into positive, empowering experiences.
The Hospital Trip is the perfect story for preparing for a hospital trip.
Perry doesn't feel very well and needs to go to hospital. He doesn't know what to expect. His head is full of worries. Luckily, his good friend, Frankie, comes along to help him figure it all out.
At the back of each book is a page just for the grown-ups to explain what a child’s needs and concerns may be and practical ideas for you to support them through each situation. With a little extra help during these big moments, a daunting experience can become an empowering one.
