Following on from the very popular Stuck for Books Graphic Novels, the next Stuck for Books talk will explore Stories for Worriers.
It has been a tricky few years for children and young people to live through, so, it comes as no surprise that the next topic requested for Stuck for Books are books that are useful for young readers with anxiety. While books can’t solve all our problems, they are a fantastic way to start conversations with young readers about their feelings, emotions and managing mental health. With such a high rise in children experiencing anxiety, it is heartening to see the wide variety of books tackling this topic available for children.
If you are stuck for inspiration of what to recommend to young readers who are struggling with feelings of worry, stress and anxiety, this talk aims to shine a light on helpful books for tackling difficult topics. In this talk, Ruth will highlight some fantastic stories on the topic of worrying for readers from 6-12 years.
Covering fiction and non-fiction stories, this talk is aimed at helping parents, librarians, teachers, booksellers and bookworms grow their confidence when it comes to guiding young readers towards books on the topic of worrying and anxiety that might help ease anxiety.
With lots of time for questions or specific recommendations, all participants will receive a full book list of all the recommendations made during the talk and any other resources mentioned.
Taking place on Wednesday the 17th of May from 7:30-8:30pm places are limited and unfortunately this talk will not be recorded. To avoid disappointment, book your tickets now!
