Behaviour Matters Series

  • (21 reviews)

    The Behaviour Matters books are a fantastic way to discuss emotions with young children. 

    These picture books use gentle stories about animals to tackle feelings, boost self-esteem and reinforce good behaviour. Designed for children in preschool and early years education, the books support the Personal, Social and Emotional Development Area of learning for the Early Years and KS1.

    The lively illustrations, by Trevor Dunton, and amusing stories, by Sue Graves, make these great books to share at home or in the classroom.
