What’s the best way to break big – and often confusing - news to a child?
Hand them some colouring pencils and speak to them in a language they understand.

Colour My Story is the work of Jo Crowley, mother of two young children and an experienced primary school educator, who began writing books for her children to help explain upcoming change that affects the entire family.

“Each book helps a child understand how a specific event is going to change their life before it occurs, and gives parents the beginning words and tools to explain change in a creative way,” Jo says.

Each book is tailored to the family – and includes the child and family members’ names and details about the change, such as moving house or getting a new family member.

The range of topics covered in the Colour My Story series include:

- Mummy Is Having A Baby
- The New Baby Moves In
- Moving House
- Starting School

The books are illustrated in a style suitable for colouring-in, so the family can spend time reading the story, colouring together and talking about the changes about to take place.
