Thanks to South Dublin County Council Libraries (SDCC) for providing me with this resource. It consists of a list of novels and books to help children cope with life’s challenges. A lot of research has obviously gone into the selection of these novels and it is a great list for teachers and schools who have to deal with an “issue” with which a pupil may be confronted.
