These stories give children an opportunity to understand and ask questions in a safe, open environment. Each book approaches the complex tool of mental health with sensitivity and child friendly language. Some of them are frank about living with mental illness, while others may simply be about characters who display characteristics associated with Autism or ADHD.
Child's Play is more than just a publishing programme, it is a philosophy. We understand that a child's early years are more important than any other and this is when they learn the most about the world around them. Books play a vital role in building the foundations for learning, and exposure to quality books from an early age helps to develop an enquiring mind and a lifelong love of reading.
Child's Play has a history of creating innovative, award-winning books for children from 0-8 years that promote learning through play – books that fully reflect our diverse society in terms of heritage, disability, gender and family.
Child's Play books are loved by parents, teachers and, most importantly, children all over the world.
