Having worked with Children, young people and families for over 20 years, Amanda has used her extensive knowledge and training to create TAMs Journey.
Her passion is to make all children and young people able to understand and accept rather than be fearful of FEELING.
All collaborators on the books are local to Swale, Kent and I am immensely proud of their hard work to help me make this dream a step closer.
TAM’s Journey – An Adventure
'Tams Journey - The beginning' introduces, through storytelling and endearing characters, how we process emotions and how this is the most NORMAL and one of the oldest bodily functions, now over stimulated’
As we move into an Era of increased awareness of our Emotional wellbeing and the impact on ourselves and society as a whole, it becomes clear that more ways of encouraging children to manage their emotional state in a much more effective and understandable way is needed.
This first book in an ongoing series, introduces the Physiological process as part of a Journey of discovery for TAM and his new friend Hetty.
Teaching Children and Young People the ‘how and why’ of emotions can remove stigma and calm some of the worry around reactions. By sharing a learning experience like a story they can develop their understanding of why we as a species respond to stimulus the way we do. This leads a greater self-awareness and in turn an opportunity to challenge some of those reactions.
This book is the first in a series and is based upon my successful primary programme ‘The TAM Project’.
“The story of Tam and Hetty clearly gives the reader an understanding of the many responses we have when we are afraid, confused or scared, beautifully written and illustrated and is a joy to read’.
