Callum Kindly and the Very Weird Child

Callum Kindly and the Very Weird Child


Callum Kindly is a kind and caring boy, who lives alone with his mum. That is until Katie Careful comes to stay with them who Callum thinks is a very weird child!

Katie manages to get in the way whenever Callum wants to speak to his mum or have snuggle time. She cries and sulks on his birthday and she steals his toy car. Luckily, his mum can explain to him why Katie acts differently.

Written by an adoptive mum and her daughter, this is a story that explains what it's like for children aged 3-10 living with foster or adopted children, or with new children in the family.


"Great story, explaining, to children how to get along & accept each other's difference. Well explained. Addresses jealousy well & is a working example of therapeutic parenting. I have all the others books, but particularly enjoyed all the messages in the one"


"As a child protection social worker working with children in care, foster carers & adopters. I can wholeheartedly recommend the series of books relating to Callum Kindly and his siblings. These books allow children to to develop their emotional literacy and understanding their biggest and scariest feelings. These books work for the smallest children up to teenagers (yes really) as they are relatable on so many levels.These books are a must for adopters, foster carers, children in care, adopted children, children with additional needs and any child who needs help with developing self awareness and emotional literacy
