We are thrilled to announce that Aiden Finds a Way is now available on Amazon, ready to reach sensitive audiences wherever they are in the the world.
Aiden Finds a Way is the story of a little boy who can't wait to visit the fire station with his parents, but he has a sudden change of heart once they get there. The sirens that might go off at any moment, the kids jumping in and out of the trucks, pushing their way to the next activity; Aiden finds himself overwhelmed with feelings of both excitement and fear, and all he can do is sit back and watch. But when he tries to join in the fun, albeit reluctantly, and things don't go the way he wants them to, Aiden needs to find a quiet spot where he can be alone for a while.
That's when Aiden finds a young Dalmatian who seems to be more nervous than he is. In his effort to make the puppy feel better, Aiden eventually finds the strength to give the fire station another go.
This book was inspired by true stories from parents of highly sensitive children everywhere, including our own, who know what it's like to have a child be thrilled about something but become too overwhelmed with emotion to actually enjoy it. And much like Aiden's parents in our story, the best thing we can do is show our kids love and support no matter how "unusual" their reactions might be, and give them the time and space they need to absorb and process their big feelings.
Needless to say, we are very excited to bring you this brand new story, and we hope it will resonate with you and your children the way All Too Much for Oliver has.
We also kindly ask that you help us spread the word any way you can.
To thank you for your support, we will be sending all those who purchase a copy of our new book a lovely postcard and set of stickers featuring illustrations from the book, plus an adorable paw-print book mark. We will also be selecting five people at random who will receive a handmade crocheted Dalmatian puppy!
