Sometimes children can be a little bit sensitive about challenges they may face in their lives. This Christmas, why not prepare your child for anything they may come across?
We have been taking a look at the Monkey Wellbeing series. Monkey Wellbeing is a collection of resources designed to help prepare your child for key life events including health care and major milestones. The books and other resources are fun and include a fun hand puppet character, Monkey.
The series consists of storybooks, activity packs, stickers and Monkey puppet and was developed by ex-teacher Helen Sadler, due to the lack of existing age appropriate health and wellbeing information available to young children.
We have enjoyed looking through the resources and Princess Pants has fallen in love with Monkey. Puppets are a fantastic way to keep the attention of children and they tend to remember more if they learn it in a fun way.
We have found ‘Monkey has an injection’ and ‘Monkey’s Guide to Starting School’ particularly useful recently. Princess Pants seems to have taken it all in too. I hope the series continues.
The complete series of storybooks and activity packs include:
- Monkey Goes to School Storybook and Activity Pack
- Monkey Has a Blood Test
- Monkey Has an Injection
- Monkey Has an Operation
- Monkey Visits Grandpa in the Hospital
- Monkey Visits the Emergency Department Activity Guide
