A Helping Hand in the classroom
The Helping Hand Stories are designed to be read together.
Each story tackles an issue that all children face as they are growing up. Using that oldest but most effective of techniques, storytelling, enables the issue to be introduced in a gentle fictional scenario but one that children can easily identify and engage with.
The stories help them to start to understand the issue and, most importantly, to talk about it and ask questions.
Encouraging children to express their feelings and worries at an early age will stand them in good stead in later life.
