About the story:
I Find it Hard to Learn is a story about understanding learning experiences, and the challenges associated with doing things differently. Filled with beautiful illustrations, colours and nameless characters, the story touches the lives of those who have faced similar situations in their education experience. Thankfully, now they can feel relief and confidence, in knowing that they were (are) not alone.
The story is a resource for parents, educators, adults and children. It is the perfect start to a great conversation about a topic that impacts so many people all around the world. As a tool for child care, schools, teacher education programs, early childhood and child development programs, it highlights why and how important reflecting on our practices can make a difference in the lives of our young people. Parents can also reflect on their parenting practices. Beautifully, the story ends with a clear understanding of how important family support, and kind words from others, and yourself, can empower, strengthen and build success!
