With the ever-changing environment around us, children can be impacted in different ways when loss, change or disasters happen, so it is important they are provided with the right support. Join us in exploring emotions caused by floods through storytelling. Royal Far West staff member Lily reads aloud to support kids in processing and understanding their feelings post-natural disasters.
Birdie and the Flood by Andrea Murray – A story for young children about recovering from floods. A natural disaster means Birdie loses her home and her feathers. Birdie and Mr Frog have to leave their homes during a terrifying flood. After the flood, they are frightened and sad until their friends and others come to help.
“Birdie and the Flood” is part of Birdie’s Tree, a suite of resources produced by the Queensland Centre for Perinatal and Infant Mental Health, Children’s Health Queensland Hospital and Health Service. Birdie’s Tree supports babies, young children and their families through natural disasters and other disruptive events.
Children who have a NDIS plan can also seek additional support from our services, to help them achieve their goals. For more information or to access this service, please complete the form on our website.
