Books Beyond Words – Wordless Therapy Storybooks

 
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.
 
Age: Teens and Special Needs
This is a story about what can happen to a man when he does not keep himself clean. People do not need to be able to read in order to understand the story. In the book we follow George’s daily life – at home, at work, on the bus and in the pub. George likes being with people and does not understand why they seem to avoid him. He often feels lonely and unhappy, and sometime feels unwell.
George’s life changes when he is helped to be clean and to wear appropriate clothes. Not only is he happy about the way he now looks and feels, but his work-mates and friends want to be with him. George enjoys their company, and no longer feels so isolated.
 
“Gives an encouraging message. Overall a unique and personal book from a remarkable woman.”
— Times Educational Supplement, Oct 2001
 
“Even those who are unable to follow the story may be able to understand some of the pictures, whereas those with greater ability will enjoy inventing their own story-line to accompany the pictures.”
