The adventures of Nutmeg, the small red squirrel, continue with this engaging story exploring some of the problems that adopted children may have, or may come into contact with, in the school environment.
As with the other books in the Nutmeg series, which began with the ever popular Nutmeg gets adopted (BAAF, 2001), this new book offers social workers, adoptive parents and carers a practical way to help adopted children explore their feelings about their circumstances and situations. In this story, Nutmeg is enjoying school but has started having problems since the arrival of Chilli, another squirrel, who lives with a foster family. Chilli calls people names and bullies the other animals, and Nutmeg gets into trouble for fighting him when trying to protect his friends. But, with the help of his parents, teachers and schoolmates, Nutmeg learns to understand Chilli's difficulties and help him to overcome them.
Comprehensive practice guidelines, which accompany the book, will help parents and professionals to get the most out of the story and to deal with the often complex issues surrounding settling in at school and establishing relationships with other children. The story will help children understand their feelings and come to terms with their own situation.
