Kai's Corner

By Mental Health Lead, in SEND SUPPORT - Friday, 21 April 2023

Looking for new books to read at bedtime to support your child's emotional development and wellbeing?

The 'Sandbox' website has a lovely section called 'Kai's corner' which is full of book recommendations for children aged 5-8 and 9-12. 

Follow the link and scroll down to find it:

Each book has a short description so you know what aspect of wellbeing and mental health the text focuses on. Why not see which texts are available at your local library? 

Some examples of the themes are: 

  • A book about things getting better with time and not being afraid to ask for help
  • A book about a hedgehog who limits himself because of worry and how he learns to manage those worries
  • A book about grief and healing following the death of Kai's dad
