Katie Careful has just moved in with her siblings and their new parents. Even if she's sad or scared, she smiles and smiles to try and hide her wobbly feelings.

She clings on to her Mum's leg and won't let go and she even follows her to the toilet, banging on the door to remind her that she's there. Luckily, her Mum understands why Katie acts this way.

Written by a mum who understands and her daughter, who is adopted, this insightful story will help your whole family to feel a bit better.


"Another marvellous Therapeutic Parenting book from this formidable writing team – our daughter could completely relate to this story and we were able to have some useful conversations about the feelings, and need behind some of her behaviours. Just brilliant!" 


"This is a phenomenal book, as are all in the series! My daughter loved it, and I can't recommend it enough!"
