Self Esteem Games for Children


Illustrations by Jane Serrurier

In this practical handbook, Deborah offers a wealth of fun and easy-to-learn games carefully chosen to help build and maintain self-esteem in children aged 5-11.

The selection of games reflects the seven foundation elements of self-esteem proposed by Deborah in her earlier book Helping Children to Build Self-Esteem and features opportunities for thinking and discussion.

The book combines games that are physically active and passive, verbal and non-verbal, and therefore accessible for children with speech/language difficulties or physical disabilities. It also offers inspiration to the reader on how to create adapted versions to suit their own needs.
