Reading stories to and with children should be an essential part of every child growing up and yet sadly many children have never enjoyed the close bond with a loved one that stories give. For some children Special Time is an opportunity to huddle up and listen to a story being read. Not only does sharing a story with a special person help develop vital attachment and provide children with a sense of safety and containment it can also help prepare children for separation and transitions. Age old favourites like peek a boo help lay the foundations for change, anticipation and surprise, be it good or bad and with many stories featuring hide and seek themes or opportunities to explore scary themes like good and bad, children have an opportunity to play out their thoughts and feelings in preparation for real life.
