The Big Hug books grew out of letters sent to children and their families after their psychology sessions. Each book has its origins in a real need for a real child with a real problem and offers real strategies from a real psychologist.

The books aim to give children, and the people who care for them, a way to talk about problems. The Big Hug books acknowledge that some moments in life are tricky and encourage acceptance, problem solving and help-seeking as needed.
