101 Healing Stories for Children
Susan Perrow passionately believes that 'stories know the way'. Working with imaginative journeys and the mystery and magic of metaphor, she has developed the art of therapeutic storytelling for children's challenging behaviour and difficult situations.
This treasury of 101 new healing stories address a range of issues – from unruly behaviour to grieving, anxiety, lack of confidence, bullying, teasing, nightmares, intolerance, inappropriate talk, toileting, bedwetting and much more. The stories also have the potential for nurturing positive values.
Peg dolls are small, enchanting, and easy to make. They are a perfect craft for children and can become the inspiration for endless play and storytelling.
Peg dolls can be made from natural materials to reflect the seasonal cycle, favourite fairytales and festivals from around the world. Inside this book you will find patterns for creating bluebirds & butterflies, flowers & fairytale figures, gnomes, winter angels and much much more.
Margaret Bloom invites you to enter the tiny magical world of peg dolls!
