Publisher's Synopsis

This beautifully illustrated and sensitively written storybook and professional guide set has been created to help preschool children understand about domestic abuse and coercive control.

Luna Little Legs: Luna loves playing with her friends at kitten club, but at home things are different. One terrible night, Luna overhears a domestic abuse incident and, when her own name is mentioned, she wonders if it might be her fault. With a comforting rhyming structure and age-appropriate tone, three alternative endings allow the story to be personalised to the experiences of the individual child.

Helping Young Children Understand About Domestic Abuse and Coercive Control: This supporting guidebook presents professionals with comprehensive information regarding domestic abuse and coercive control and its impact on young children. With page-by-page notes to support the reading of the story and practical activities to help broach the topic in a non-threatening way, it puts the adult in a position to have important and informed interactions with young children.

Broaching a challenging topic in a sensitive way, this is an essential tool for early years practitioners, as well as professionals working with children and families who are experiencing, or have experienced, domestic abuse and coercive control.
