Synopsis

Have Fun with Your Senses! The Kids Sensory Survival Guide by John Taylor

This book represents an introduction to the human senses for kids. It might be your child's first read about your own problems guide. It explains what can go wrong when the brain inappropriately magnifies the messages sense organs send to it.

Making inappropriate responses to sensory input from various senses is commonly referred to as sensory processing disorder, or SPD. The child avoids, resists, or becomes emotionally upset about experiencing sensory awareness, to a level that significantly interferes with a child's ability to perform the necessary major functions of daily living. This book is a therapy guide for any child with sensory issues.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
