“The journals Francesca created were incredibly beneficial for pupil wellbeing and they were particularly useful to help support pupils who were transitioning from year six to year seven. This is a crucial time in a young person’s life and therefore to start the PSHE year using these journals really reinforced some key themes that are necessary for development and managing the ‘self.’” Try it with your child with this free 6-week positivity journal.
In this story children will see how the friends work together to make the plan work. Kiki may do the superhero stuff and fight the eye-patch cat but her plan is based on using everyone’s skills: Banjo’s strength for the chains, Piero’s creativity and charm to distract the other cats, etc.
Kiki and Friends help move your children into a place of giving and caring. Let your children feel part of something bigger than themselves – like the world and all the amazing animals in it.
Not one bit of me wanted to go near the lice on my son’s head. But I realised he was counting on me. If I stayed paralysed with an expression of disgust smudged across my face, I was only going to do something no parent wants to do: pass on my fears and damage his self-esteem. I had to stop passing on my fears and start being a strong mother!
Reading fairy tales or stories to children has been a longstanding tradition – one we don’t even need reminding of, until now perhaps with an overload of TV and screen time. Choosing not to read to your child and opting to place them in front of a screen is forcing your child into a state of isolation. Discover how you can change this and help your child grow up to be healthy, happy and successful by reading with them.

Here you will find out all about the characters in the Kiki and Friends series of books set in Sleepy Meadow, a quintessentially British village where nothing really happens – unless you’re a cat!
As a children’s author I would like to “do my bit” for the families of Britain. The best way I can think of is to entertain the “mini troops” with stories from my books – PLUS activities based on the stories. So, I ventured out into the technological minefield of social media and set up a Facebook group where you can come join me with your children: Kiki’s Secret Cat Club (https://www.facebook.com/groups/kikisclub).
We all want to give our children a happy healthy start in life. With the help of Kiki and Friends, you can do just that.
