An A-Z COllection of Behaviour Tales
From Angry Ant to Zestless Zebra
This must-have collection of behaviour tales offers story medicine as a creative strategy for parenting, teaching and counselling. Telling the right story at the right time can help children face challenges and change behaviour.
A-Z Collection of behaviour Tales
All 42 stories begin with an undesirable or out-of-balance situation. Then, through metaphor and an imaginative story journey, they lead to a more desirable resolution. The stories also have the potential to nurture positive values.
Following the alphabet from A to Z, each behaviour is identified in the story title: angry, anxious, bullying, demanding, fussy, greedy, jealous, loud, obnoxious, quibbling, uncooperative, and so on. From Angry Ant to Zetless Zebra.
The stories, some humorous, some serious, are especially relevant for children aged three to nine years – and the child in every adult! They are for telling and adapting: turn them into home-made picture books or puppet shows, or even create new tales from them. A pencil illustration by Allmut ffrench accompanies each story.
