This series of books addresses issues often left unspoken about to young children. Whilst the topics are “tough” they are too important to avoid.
The First title; “The Disappearing Sister”, is aimed at providing a platform by which discussion may be started in a guided environment to help young children understand the nature of an Eating Disorder illness. As well as this I hope that this story might help families identify how the whole family is needed to help their loved one on the long road of their recovery to full health.
