Bear Force is a delightful story that can be easily read by children and become a delightful addition to any child’s book collection. It can also be used to provide an opportunity for children to create their own ideas for AB’s adventures or explore the bear’s possible emotions as well as their own, using separate text within its pages.
Advice has been provided by Sarah Anderson, a children’s’ psychotherapist, who has over thirty years’ experience of working with the emotional needs of children, plus the incredible management team at the charity, KidsOut, who help support children fleeing domestic abuse and those from disadvantaged backgrounds. Further advice during the development of Bear Force, has been provided by The Dove Service, teachers, leaders within children’s organisations, and those previously affected by mental health issues during childhood.
All profit from sales of the book, merchandise, and donations, is used to extend the reach of the charity’s work.
