About the Book

Fantastic Florence – It’s NOT Your Fault! – A Story about Neglect tells the story of Camille and Bryan, who cannot rely on their parents to look after them. Their grandparents bring the children to their house, but Camille feels worried. What if her parents return home and she and Bryan are not there? Is it okay if she feels safer being with her grandparents? Florence’s magical powers enable her to hear the children’s thoughts, and she decides she must do something! She sends them an empowering message to help them bravely face what is happening, using validation and empathy to comfort them. Florence explains the situation is NOT their fault, and encourages them to share their feelings with their grandparents.
