Dr. Karen Treisman introduces Cleo the Crocodile, who is here to support children who have had difficult upbringings

Cleo the Crocodile loved having fun with all of the other animals, until Hayden the Hippo started being mean to Cleo and he had to leave to another swamp. Scared of being hurt again, Cleo swung, snapped and stared at all the others animals so that he would be left alone. Would he ever be happy again and make friends? How would he feel safe and ready for new adventures?

This activity book developed by expert psychologist Dr. Karen Treisman is an illustrated therapeutic story about Cleo the Crocodile to help start conversation with children who have had to move into foster care. It aims to help children to explore their feelings of anger and rejection, and shows their loved ones how to build their trust!
