Ouch! Why Do I Hurt?
This workbook and guide provides a fun, interactive way to teach kids about how pain works and what to do about it.
Studies show that when kids understand how pain works, they fear it less and are more able to return to school and the activities they enjoy—which can help them start feeling better. This workbook and guide includes stories, metaphors, colorful illustrations and activities to help teach kids about the body’s amazing protective system–the nervous system.
Kids will learn how pain works and healthy ways to manage pain when they experience it. Writing, drawing and coloring activities help kids discover steps they can take to start feeling better, while also improving comprehension of the information in the book.
