How this book might help: Helping children deal with sibling rivalry and sharing parental affections.
Hector is one of Tilly's toy friends, and loves being close to her. When Tilly's other toys decide to come for a cuddle too, Hector doesn't feel so special - and gets cross and sad. The other toys try to cheer Hector up by asking him to join in their play, but he's not interested: he just wants to be with Tilly. He cheers up, though, when Tilly paints a lovely picture of him which shows him that just because she sometimes plays with her other toys, doesn't mean she doesn't love him. This is a quirkily-illustrated book with simple words and lots of energy that will appeal particularly to young children. It may help children deal with sibling rivalry and sharing parental affections.
