Shhhh ... 
Hardcover - Sep 28, 2007

of  Roxane-Marie Galliez  (Author),  Sandrine Lhomme  (Author)

 “You haven't always spoken. It's like that. Why you ? You and not me? I do not know ". Being the sister or brother of a disabled child is always a mixture of happiness and pain.
By alternating warm tones and icy tones over the pages, the illustrator plunges us into this duality of relations between a child and his disabled sister: happiness to share common feelings despite the difference, special attention and listening, but also rejection. , frustration and guilt. Written in the first person singular with children's words, the sentences are short, poetic and modest. They will resonate above all in the ears of children concerned by the subject. The graphics, all in roundness, accompany the reader in the imaginary world created by the child. But it is with her feet on the ground that she concludes: "there is a path for everyone, I promise to come and meet yours often".

Too many stimuli for Alexis
A story about hypersensitivity 
Hardcover - 23 Aug 2012

of  Francoise Robert  (Author),  Sonya Cote  (Author),  & 1  more

Alexis is a smart and playful little boy who, like all children, loves to laugh and have fun. However, in his case, the game and the excitement lead to a great disorganization which he cannot control. It overreacts, turning into a small tornado or having fits. In addition, Alexis sometimes overreacts to certain stimuli -; such as background noise, bright light or uncomfortable clothing -; which, however, have no effect on his friends.

Would Alexis be hyperactive? Not at all ! He is a hypersensitive child, that is to say he perceives certain stimuli much more intensely than the majority of people. Hence the importance of providing him with the tools that will allow him to prevent and manage potentially difficult situations for him.
