How Little Coyote Found His Secret Strength

A Story About How to Get Through Hard Times

In a deep dark forest, Little Coyote grows up with a tough gang of big strong coyotes. They are cruel, call him names and order him about all day long.

Little Coyote is too small to run away or to stand up for himself, so he learns to do what he's told and makes his body small so nobody notices him. Then, one day he goes on an adventure and ends up discovering new hidden strengths that he never knew he had.

This therapeutic picture book is written to help children aged 4-10 and adults to talk about difficult experiences growing up (including things they may still be going through), and explores how they can affect how your body feels and reacts to things. It is followed by easy to read advice for adults on how to help your child.

The pictures and rich descriptive text convey the real life experience of so many children ... Children will feel relieved and understood as they recognize themselves and their peers in the characters.

A brilliant addition to the field of mental health for the treatment of trauma in children ... accessible, educational and fun for clients, parents and therapists alike. Bravo!

Elizabeth S. Warner, Psy.D, Clinical psychologist and SMART Project Director, Trauma Center at JRI

Delightful ... The Guide for Grown Ups at the end of the book offers child-friendly ways to extend the value of the story into everyday life, and bolsters parent understanding.

Practical and accessible ... This important and timely series is a must read for anyone who has a need for trauma literacy.

ea Keltner, Director, Whitman County Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA)

The depiction of bullying and peer pressure made my heart pound knowing that my girls (13 and 17) are just developing those skills that Coyote needed ... I'd add this book to my library for my volunteers to read to their foster children.

Rochelle Sharpe Lohrasbe, PhD, RCC, EMDRIA-approved consultant in EMDR, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute

A welcome addition to any clinician's library and a marvelous resource for caregivers!
