Thinking in pictures
 
People who can’t read or who don’t like written words are often very good at reading pictures. That’s why there are no words in these picture stories. These books all tell a story, but they also let the reader tell their own story – the one they see in the pictures. This can tell you a lot about a person’s inner world and their understanding of situations. There is plenty to talk about and each story explores feelings and relationships as well as giving information.
 
 
Choosing My First Job
Work is something that everyone should be encouraged to aim for when they leave school or college. For Zac, Chelsea and Amy it is just a matter of finding the job and route that fits them best. Zac's not sure that work is for him, and his teacher has to think creatively to help him try out a job that matches his interests perfectly. For Chelsea, a period of work experience and trying out different tasks helps to identify the right job. Amy does a college course and travel training alongside her work placement to get all the experience and qualifications she needs for the career she wants. 
 
Glory Wants a Job
Glory is in her 30s and hasn't had a job before. When she bumps into an old friend working in a clothes shop, she is inspired to set off on a path to a career of her own. Glory Wants a Job follows Glory's journey from the earliest planning sessions, through vocational profiling and a working interview, to settled employment and the social, financial and wellbeing benefits it brings. 
 
A Family at Work
The Kumars are a hard-working family. Mum has a part-time job at the theatre, Dad looks after the dog and everyone cares passionately about the environment. Everyone pitches in at home. When Dad does a neighbour a good turn by walking her dog for her, it sparks an idea about how to turn a hobby into a small business. Soon the whole family is helping out, advertising and organising the new business and involving the local community. 
 
A Good Day's Work
Work is a big part of life for both John and Daisy. They get some very important benefits from work, like friendship and money to spend on the things they want. There are responsibilities too, like being on time, following policies like health and safety, and working well as a team. A Good Day's Work shows John and Daisy taking pride in their jobs and understanding their responsibilities well, so that they can sort out problems when they crop up. The stories can be read together or on their own to help someone think about what the day-to-day reality of having a job is like, or to talk about their own situations and responsibilities and how they can make sure they are getting the most from their job.

The Drama Group
Dean goes to the theatre with his family. He enjoys it so much his friend James encourages him to go to a drama group. He’s very nervous and finds it hard to join in at first. But once he gets to know people he has a really good time, doing both backstage roles and acting. Drama groups are a good way to meet new friends and to take part in a theatre production. You can be an actor, or take on a backstage role – like painting the scenery, lighting, make-up, or stage management. Every role in a theatre production is important – if somebody doesn’t turn up, the show can’t go on. T
