Aiden Finds a Way: Book Review 

Sometimes children just need a little time to warm up to a new environment and adjust to the hustle and bustle of a place. That’s what Aiden Finds a Way is about, another beautiful My Quiet Adventures story book that has been written with highly sensitive children in mind.

The Story

Aiden has a day out at the local fire station planned and is excited. However, once he is at the fire house he finds he is overwhelmed by the busyness and noise of the sirens and other children. He’s reluctant to join in and instead wanders off to find a quiet place where he can sit alone. There he meets an unexpected friend who perhaps feels even more uncomfortable than he does.

What We Thought of Aiden Finds a Way

Just like All Too Much for Oliver, this book is beautifully illustrated with subtle, relaxing tones. Emotions ooze out of every page you turn.

All three of my sons enjoyed reading the story (aged 5 – 10) and my youngest was particularly charmed by Aiden’s adventures as he immediately recognised himself in Aiden’s reaction to all the noise and hustle of the fire station. He declared that he too likes to take quiet time away when he is in a busy place.

And therein lies the beauty of the My Quiet Adventures books: highly sensitive children see themselves in the characters and situations and it makes them smile and feel reassured there is nothing unusual in how they feel in certain situations.

This is a story book that every young highly sensitive child should have on their book shelf.
