Books That Help

05 August 2022 Share


Children’s author Clare Helen Welsh has launched a picture books site aimed at stocking titles covering emotional situations, including family separations and illness.

Books That Help was set up by the former primary school teacher to encourage emotional literacy in children, advocating the use of picture books to help families through hard times.

The site will offer a range of titles focusing on issues including grief, anxiety, well-being and moving house.

Each month, the website will be spotlighting an independent bookshop that is "getting important books into the hands of little readers". The shop’s logo and website links will be promoted on the site and tagged on Books That Help’s social media channels.


SLA also have booklists of books to help all ages children, so if you don't find what you need above, please do contact us and we can point you in the direction of our resources.
