Product Description

Product Description

This is the first volume of short stories about the lives of Alfie, Zara, Toby and all their friends at the nursery. This series is simple and easy to read, getting to know each character and a tiny insight into what may come. There are ten characters in these stories, they are at nursery in this set, and so are aged 3-4, I love this series because of the reason I started to write and these books and the memories of just where I wanted to go and have now gone, here’s a little about me and happy reading;

About Author Laura Edmonds

My name is Laura Edmonds and I am the author of the children's series, “Building Memories.” I started this series nearly four years ago now whilst on maternity leave with my second child. I have two fabulous children with whom all of the comical bits wouldn't have been created.
We live in West Yorkshire and enjoy everything Yorkshire has to offer, along with two cats, two Hamsters and far too many fish!
From even before leaving school, I have always worked with children, from working in nurseries, babysitting to now working for the Children's Palliative Care Team, I've always wanted to have the chance to explain life events to the children without it being a taboo subject. I had a huge passion for psychology and how children’s minds work and wanted to come up with some great story books to test this.
I have eight children's books so far, consisting of eighty-eight short stories. This book is volume one and I am currently working my way through the ninth series.
I am also writing some great books to accompany these for adults, based on the lives of these families and the gritty details of why these children's lives are turning out the way they have.
I wanted my books to be books the whole family can enjoy. As well as to have an underlying message, they also had to tell a fun story, a story that children would want to read and anyone who has picked one up, soon picks them all up!
My books challenge subjects such as disability, sexuality and death, to show how great children cope in these situations, and how resilient they are to these changes. Children deserve a lot more credit for what they can actually understand and deal with; they are marvellous examples of how we could actually cope ourselves!

Finally some books to reassure children that it's ok to be different and life isn't always a fairy tale. We live in a society that has many scenarios and not the typical mum, dad, 2 children. These are an excellent resource to discuss normal, difficult and challenging issues with children. They also reflect how resilient children are and we as adults can learn a lot from their coping mechanisms.

I liked this book because it is easy to read and can be enjoyed by any child. However it must have been written by someone who has had a deep experience of life with children and it provides an insight into real life situations for the adult reader. I felt that the opening page, written in a childlike form with deliberately incorrect spelling may unjustifiably put off a cynical adult reader. Don't be put off! This is a GOOD READ. Everybody can learn from this book.

So impressed with these stories which will help little ones understand that things change and are sometimes hard to understand but it's ok to be a bit different. Reassuringly honest.

Excellent first series......can't wait for the next.
I like the initial introductions to the characters and I can see that they will be very useful tools for children, parents and perhaps teachers & other professionals to help explain the day to day challenges life can throw at us.
If your pondering whether to read them don't............ Like me you won't be able to wait for the next release.

Good work!!!
