With the Mouse and The Storm, Susan has done it again. She is making reflexology accessible to a whole new generation. In this book, Mouse and friends are back but this time introducing hand reflexology. Parents, their children and practitioners will all find this useful. How fabulous to help so many to help themselves with drug-free, anxiety-reducing reflexology. -- Jane Sheehan, author of Let's Read Our Feet!, The Foot Reading Coach and Sole Trader: The Holistic Therapy Business Handbook
This book will teach you and your child how to use hand reflexology as a self-calming tool. The charming story about a group of animals who experience an unexpected storm is beautifully illustrated and has simple diagrams on each page. It's a lovely way to connect with and reassure your child. -- Lisa Spillane, author of Six Healing Sounds with Lisa and Ted and Smiling Heart Meditations with Lisa & Ted (and Bingo)
I cannot recommend this book enough! My three boys have benefited hugely from this story so much so that I also attended the additional needs course. It's fantastic having another tool in the box and my eldest son has been able to use the techniques at school independently when he is becoming anxious. Everyone who has a child with additional needs should learn this. -- Jo Watts, mother of three boys with autism
The Mouse's House series of books are a must for empowering both children and their families and helping them negotiate life from its earliest moments. Mouse and the Storm is perfect for all families who need help dealing with life's more challenging moments and allowing children to recognise that they can find comfort and that they will be okay. -- Nicky Read, The Camomile Rooms and Nurture 4 Life
