Tricky Topics

Something a bit different for our club this month, instead of an activity sheet, we have a digital guide to books dealing with tricky topics. Sometimes raising issues like anxiety, depression or bullying with our children can feel impossible. Books can be a great gateway to these conversations.

Enjoy colouring in Little Kiwi as he lays in his nest with all the noisy critters around him keeping him awake!
