Recovering together after a natural disaster

Welcome to Birdie’s Tree! Natural disasters like storms, cyclones, floods or fire can be very frightening and upsetting for babies and young children. Playing a therapeutic game or reading a story with a caring adult can help a young child work through the scary experiences and ‘big feelings’. There’s information for parents and carers too. Come and meet Birdie and Mr Frog!
