Call for Bibliotherapy Suggestions

Posted for Cyndee Kalodner:

“I am a psychologist and aspiring kids book author. This combination leads me to think about fiction can be used with kids in a therapuetic way. We all know that kids learn a lot about themselves from reading some books. What I want to do is take reading fiction into the realm of counseling/therapy.

“My project is a book tentatively titled ‘How to Use Books That Kids Read: Counseling Strategies That Work.’ This book is aimed at professional counselors, psychologists, and social works, as well as teachers and librarians. I am looking for suggestions for books to include that fit into middle-grade and YA.

“I will need to be able to work with authors to develop worksheets/handouts to assist professionals in talking with kids about your book. Your publisher will need to provide permission to include your book in this book.

“Please email me at if you are interested in more information.”
