Highly sensitive children (HSC) often connect deeply with animals. There are a number of reasons for this and a HSC can benefit greatly from life with a beloved pet (such as anxiety reduction to name but one important benefit).
My sons have been begging for a pet of their own for years but we just don’t have the physical space (nor have I had the time to care for yet another living creature). Soon that will change.
During the summer we are moving house. We are swapping town life for village life. We are trading a postage stamp garden for the kind of outdoor space we have long dreamed of. Space will no longer be a restriction. So the boys are on a promise of least a cat (a kitten as far as they are concerned) and maybe a rabbit or two.
And I am absolutely sure that the additions to our family will have a huge positive affect on my three HSCs.
The power an animal can have on a HSC is a theme that runs through the latest My Quiet Adventures’ book: Aiden Finds a Way. This beautiful new book features Aiden making friends with a Dalmatian puppy and the result is heartwarming.
In honour of the special relationship that our HSCs have with animals and the release of the second in the My Quiet Adventures series of books for our sensitive children I am delighted to host a giveaway.
There are three amazing sets to win.
A copy of Aiden Finds a Way accompanied by this wonderful handcrafted puppy.
Secondly there is a copy of the book with a set of related postcards and stickers.
And last but not least a copy of the book.
All you have to do to win one of these prizes is share how animals (have) play(ed) a role in your HSCs life. Share an anecdote about your HSCs reaction to an animal. Tell about the relationship your HSC has with a pet. Anything animal related at all! You can share a picture or use words – or use any other creative means you wish.

The giveaway will close on June 30th and the winners will be notified shortly after. Please ensure you communicate a way to contact you.
