A book your child will thrive on
It’s called Sammy the Starfish, and it’s the first (soon-to-be-launched) in a series of books called My Feeling Friends, written by Registered Counsellor Phillippa Morassi who thrives on helping children, adolescents and adults, providing a tailored approach to suit their needs. Using the power of human connection and floor play, she engages with children to encourage communication, positive behaviour and learning.
She’s had the most wonderful response to her upcoming children’s book, that Phillippa has decided to take pre-orders, as the first release is only 100 copies! Each book in the series introduces an emotion that children might find difficult to deal with.
In Sammy the Starfish (which is beautifully illustrated by Megan Andrews), Sammy feels sad, and he doesn’t know what to do to feel better. The books speak about a particular coping skill that children can learn to manage big emotions.
The stories introduce empathy for others; to reach out and try and help someone else who might be feeling the same way. Each book also comes with a bean bag character and a flashcard reminding them of the coping skills they can use.
The books are in the publishing process and should be available by end August. For the first 100 copies, the author will write a special dedication to your kiddies in the book.
The full book package costs R400 (50% deposit on order) which includes:
Sammy the Starfish soft cover book signed by the author
Sammy the Starfish bean bag toy (girl, boy or neutral)
Sammy the Starfish flashcard
