The Animals In Me was written by Tamara Freeburn, a Paediatric Occupational Therapist specialising in Autism Spectrum Disorders and other special needs. The book aims to teach children about self-regulation and how to adapt to various situations by using emotional, thinking and sensory based strategies. The book details a day in the life of a child demonstrating the various levels of arousal experienced using the analogy of transforming into different animals. This book appeals to children of all ages with its poetic style and engaging illustrations. It can be read individually and is a fantastic teaching tool in a classroom environment.
