Little Parachutes: Picture books to help children with life's challenges
Little Parachutes provides a unique and simple way to search for picture books that address situations and issues that young children experience.
"For you as a parent, finding the book that gives you and your child a mutual way of dealing with a life-event, a subliminal anxiety or the need to find an emotional outlet, is one of the best things you can do for and with your child."
- Virginia Mallin, Little Parachutes' Resident Psychotherapist
