Morris and the Bundle of Worries by Jill Seeney All young children have worries, but looked after children may have more worries than most as they lack the reassurance and security of permanent, stable family life.
In this colourful picture book for young children, Morris the Mole finds out that talking about his problems, and facing his worries with the help of others, is more helpful than hiding his fears.
My favourite character was Nightingale because she solved the problem by listening.
I recommend this book to others because it is fun. I read it by myself. Elfa and the Box of Memories by Michelle Bell Looked after children may have more difficult memories that most, because of separation and loss and traumatic events that may have taken place. In this charming picture book, Elfa the elephant discovers that sharing her memories and remembering the good things that happened is more helpful than keeping them locked away.
My favourite character is Elfa, especially when she is small and has the Ellie spots because she looks cute! I love reading this book with my mum. Memory boxes are very special because they are all about you and at home we often talk about how important they are.
My favourite character was Marvin because he shared the memories. Marvin also found the lost memories. I recommend this book to other people because it had a happy ending. I wish I could meet Jacqueline Wilson. This book shows how many different families there are, and all are happy, safe, and love each other, which is the most important thing.
So now if anyone says something horrible to me, I tell him, I am happy with my family, then I run off and play. And I only play with them at school. Nutmeg Gets Adopted by Judith Foxon The story of a small red squirrel, Nutmeg, and his younger sister and brother who go through the process of separation, foster care and then going to live with a new, adopted family when their mother is unable to look after them and keep them safe.
I liked this book because I could relate to it in a number of ways and that I felt somebody else understood me even if it was just a squirrel in a book. I liked the owl in the forest best when I was younger as he symbolised being a judge which allowed Nutmeg to be adopted by his new parents.
And for me that was important. I identified with Nutmeg the most as I felt he knew just what I had been through when I was younger and that he ended up being in a happy family like I did. All the issues they talked about in the book I pretty much experienced too such as not having a safe home to live in and not enough food etc.I Don't Have Your Eyes but I have your way of looking at things.
