The Tough Times series is designed to help early years practitioners support very young children who are experiencing particular stress or anxiety. Each of these short books looks at what the child might be feeling and offers guidance and a dozen suitable activities. The aim is to equip adullts working with babies and young children who are troubled or distressed with an accessible resource to which they can quickly refer to in times of need. Tough Times has been written by the authors of the very successful Little Baby Books series, both experienced in the early years and with a wealth of experience in helping and supporting young children in a variety of environments and backgrounds.
