An absorbing, therapeutic and beautifully written way into our children's hearts and minds. I am going to be busy recommending this book to all professionals who work with children who have/are experiencing trauma. I wasn't sure that you could triumph your first publication, but you certainly have. Many congratulations Jane.

Kit Kitten and the Topsy-Turvy Feelings is a charming and approachable book which helps young children who have experienced insecurity, to begin to name and explore feelings. It is also a gentle reminder to those supporting and caring for children that we must give children our time, really listen to what they are telling us and not rush to name feelings for them. The story of Kit Kitten is a lovely and non-threatening way for young children to start to explore their own experiences and to regain a sense of safety and belonging.
Youth in Mind
The guide for grown-ups at the back of the book, and the suggested activities, are both very good and the many faces in the book do provide opportunity for adults to work with children identifying different emotions.
The pictures are vibrant and very expressive, and with one to each two page spread, they provide lots of information about how the two cats feel.
