About this ebook

WOODLAND WISDOM BOOKS were created to support parents, caregivers, educators, counsellors, and other helpers in the community to navigate difficult subjects with children. As a Children’s Counsellor, I am often asked, “How do I talk to a child about (insert difficult subject here)?” I wanted to provide resources that talk about the issue the child is going through in honest age-appropriate language that also guides the reader on how to help the child process their thoughts and feelings in a healthy way.

Working in non-profit agencies, I recognize resources are not always available to fund enough staff to meet the need in the community. I wanted to create resources that will be helpful to children who are on waitlists to receive counselling services. My hope is that these books will also reach children who may never end up attending counselling.

Woodland Wisdom Books start with a guide for the readers then the story begins. The characters of Woodland Woods tell tales of struggles, triumphs, and wisdom. The books end with exercises providing further ideas for healthy ways to deal with difficult issues.
