Teach children to recognise and cope with feelings of jealousy
K. I. Al-Ghani is a special educational needs teacher who has worked for more than 35 years in the field of education. She is currently a specialist teacher for inclusion support and is involved with training professionals, students and parents in aspects of ASD. As an author and a mother of a son with ASD - the illustrator Haitham Al-Ghani - she has spent the last 25 years researching the enigma that is autism.
I love the author's boundless creativity and use of accessible
language to help children wrap their minds around a very important
lesson. By giving jealousy its own personality as a Green-Eyed
Goblin, it also helps children learn to be less attached to it, so
they can learn how to move from jealousy to gratitude. BRAVO Kay!
You've written another gem. -- Brian R. King, Success Coach for
Asperger's, ADHD & Dyslexia
The illustrations alone would make this book worthwhile! The crayon, child-like and very expressive pictures add greatly to the text... Nevertheless, both are very necessary to this book about jealousy and anger... the author is an expert on autism, and she may well intend this to be an autistic child. However, the story is highly useful for non-autistic children too - those who are capable of great anger for small reasons... She also has some good coping strategies that will help... A beautifully published book with lots going for it. -- Healthy Books * healthybooks.org.uk *
