'This delightful gentle story gives children plenty of opportunities to explore their feelings. This is a useful tool for teachers and others involved in group work as it addresses issues relating to self-esteem in an accepting and non-judgmental atmosphere. The activities are fun and topics such as 'false friends' are introduced in an entertaining and lively way. I would recommend these materials to anyone wanting to use self-esteem as a topic in their sessions with children.'

The Adventures of the Little Tin Tortoise is a practical, interactive storybook for building and maintaining self-esteem in children aged seven to nine.
Using the tradition of oral story-telling, Deborah Plummer encourages children to consider the self-esteem issues encountered by a little tin tortoise on a journey to discover who he really is. The various obstacles and helpers he encounters along the way include worries, bullying, making decisions and friendship and children will gain age-appropriate insights from the story depending on their needs and level of understanding. Activity sheets and expansion topics also prompt children to explore the seven key elements of healthy self-esteem - self-knowledge, self and others, self-acceptance, self-reliance, self-expression, self-confidence and self-awareness - through active participation and discussion in pairs or groups.
Teachers, parents, carers and all who support children in the development of healthy self-esteem will find this an essential resource.
