Jenny: Magnificent Marvelous Me
“This book is a great way for her to express her feelings in a safe place…”
Dear Art with Heart,
I received the books you sent. They are absolutely wonderful. I have already given Magnificent Marvelous Me to Jenny, sister to one of my patients who is coping with her older brother’s brain injury and hospitalization following a suicide attempt. She is eight years old, and this book is a great way for her to express her feelings in a safe place. I look forward to working together on some of the activities with her.
I love how open-ended the book’s activities are. There are so many books out there that are very specific, which is nice, but I like that this book can really be used for any stressful life situation, not just a particular diagnosis. I wish I would have come up with this myself!
