Helping children understand natural disasters

Mar 4, 2022

The team at Children’s Health Queensland (CHQ) have developed a range of story books for parents in supporting their children through various life events. Over the years, the character of “Birdie” has helped explain natural disasters like floods and fires or illnesses like Covid 19. These issues are explored in a child friendly and developmentally appropriate way, helping parents explain these sometimes overwhelming events to children. We thought given the recent flood events in Queensland it would be worth reminding people these wonderful books exist. Check out “Birdie and the flood” and other titles in the link below.
