The Story Cure: An A-Z of Books to Keep Kids Happy, Healthy and Wise

By (author) Ella Berthoud; By (author) Susan Elderkin; Illustrated by Rohan Eason

The stories that shape our children’s lives are too important to be left to chance. With The Story Cure, bibliotherapists Ella Berthoud and Susan Elderkin have put together the perfect manual for grown-ups who want to initiate young readers into one of life’s greatest pleasures. There’s a remedy for every hiccup and heartache, whether it’s between the covers of a picture book, a pop-up book, or a YA novel. You’ll find old favourites like The Borrowers and The Secret Garden alongside modern soon-to-be classics by Michael Morpurgo, Malorie Blackman and Frank Cottrell-Boyce, as well as helpful lists of the right reads to fuel any obsession – from dogs or dinosaurs, space or spies. Wise and witty, The Story Cure will help any small person you know through the trials and tribulations of growing up, and help you fill their bookshelves with adventure, insight and a lifetime of fun.
