The Story Cure
The Story Cure: An A-Z of Books to Keep Kids Happy, Healthy and Wise | Ella Berthoud, Susan Elderkin
2 posts | 11 to read
From tantrums to tummy aches to teenage mood swings, there are times when a book is the best medicine of all. The Story Cure is a manual for grownups who believe that the stories which shape children's lives should not be left to chance. In these pages bibliotherapists Ella and Susan recommend the perfect children's book - from picture books to YA novels via the golden world of chapter books - for every hiccup and heartache. Whether the young child you know is being bullied, the toddler can't sleep, or the teenager has fallen in love for the first time - or just doesn't know what to read next - the right story will help them feel themselves again. Packed full of helpful lists of the best books to read when turning ten or going through a spy/horse/superhero phase, you'll find old favourites such as The Borrowers and The Secret Garden alongside modern classics by MT Anderson, Malorie Blackman and Frank Cottrell Boyce. The Story Cure is the perfect companion for initiating young readers into one of life's greatest pleasures.

I'm just going through my new copy of The Story Cure and it's making me want to reread so many books. I love that Weetzie Bat is listed here, especially as a cure for losing one's belief in magic. It certainly helped me when I was a kid!
