A beautiful, simple, whimsical and inviting book giving a child's perspective on tactile defensiveness or sensory processing disorder, a condition that means one is overly sensitive to many touch sensations.
This is a children's book written in the language of a child, and while it does not aim to treat or diagnose the dysfunction it provides comfort and understanding for those of us that live with it. The book is filled with photographs of the author Noreen's daughter engaged in the daily routine of her life, which immediately invites you to empathise with the written description of her challenges. Intended to be an interactive read with your child, each page offers a drawing journal with guiding questions. This provides an opportunity for children to talk about their individual needs.
Most of all the book is inspiring and the first in a series of more to come.
