They are also adaptable if necessary, to meet the specific needs of children with communication and learning difficulties, and those who do not have English as their first language The book's main strengths are two-fold: accessibility and versatility. It can be used as a resource to "dip into", with each part of the book being sufficiently discrete to facilitate this.

Alternatively, it can be used as the basis for a "course" on coping with stress, anxiety and change. Versatility also means that the activities can be used with individual or groups of children.
Irrespective of the mode of use, readers are at liberty to choose the most appropriate salient parts of the book to meet their needs. Overall, Plummer claims to have provided a resource with practical activities and strategies to help children cope with change, stress and anxiety. In practice, the handbook inspires an abundance of creative and imaginal experiences and exercises to enable children to develop creativity, self-awareness and to raise self-esteem.
The photocopiable resources are attractive and stimulating and designed to promote problem-solving, to develop resilience, and to begin to understand and self-regulate difficult feelings. The approach aims also to develop the child's emotional literacy, allowing the child to name and understand emotions that otherwise might have the capacity to overwhelm them.
This is a most helpful and well organized for anyone involved in the holistic development of children. It is well written, clear and jargon free, with a good balance of theoretical explanation and practical activities. It has a useful list of story books although by no means exhaustive for use in these contexts, an index and an activities index. The book is intended for seven to 11 year olds but could be expanded to a wider age range. It would be a valuable resource for SLTs who manage emotionally-distressed children with language and social communication disorders, particularly those working in child and adolescent mental health services.
It offers a fully photocopiable set of activities, and combines theory with games and activities designed to help kids manage their emotions. A fine pick for any teacher's collection.
