Guide a child to create their very own magical garden in just 9 steps.
My Magical Garden will take children into a world full of magic, where they will be inspired to create and explore their own garden. They are invited on an enchanted journey through a magical garden where, on each page, they get to choose their surroundings. Observe as their emotions become transparent through the choices they make on this and in order to understand those choices, the book's authors have created an 11-page appendix at the back of the book.
It’s a magical place where they can activate their imagination and provide an outlet for their creativity as well as providing an opportunity to articulate their feelings by being free to explore and express themselves through the choices that they make.
My Magical Garden is a collection of illustrations and poems written to help children, from the age of four, work through their emotions and express them in a safe and loving way. Not only is it a beautifully illustrated book for children to enjoy but it is a wonderful resource for parents and professionals alike. It is a simple, effective and non invasive approach which allows the adult to understand the needs of the child by the choices they make on each illustrated page of the book.
My Magical Garden also encourages children to tap into their imagination by getting the them to create their own magical garden, giving them a safe place to go in their mind during times of stress, fear, sadness, when things are difficult at home or school or just when they need to escape their busy life.
The book also includes the My Magical Garden Guided Visualisation CD Rom with relaxing music and an accompanying voice over using the power of guided imagery to help children become calmer and happier within themselves.
