This book may help children come to terms with childhood worries and encourage them to admit mistakes and tell the truth.
Books that encourage children to behave well. Some books in this collection provide children with strategies to improve undesirable behaviour. Others acknowledge that sometimes this is a challenge!
Inquisitive children who love to help will engage with Edie. They will be able to relate to her, and understands what she is doing. Furthermore, readers can be encouraged to look closely at the pictures, to see how any help Edie is giving might be received, and to think of ways in which their own helping strategies might be improved. This book affectionately explains a child’s thought processes, and reminds the adult reader that perhaps what might sometimes be seen as “naughtiness” is often just a small person’s way of helping.
