Book Review- The Elephant that blows Rainbows by Dimitra V. Mousioli

How can you explain mediation to children?

I was recommended this children’s book by a fellow mediator and read it not knowing quite what to expect.

The book centres around a dispute between a badger and a weasel in the forest and how when their argument erupts, they go to the wise owl for the owl to determine who was right. The queue is long, delays are inevitable, and another solution is suggested- mediation. The animals then give it a try.

This beautifully illustrated book is a fantastic way to explain mediation to children through a story that they will enjoy.  The book shows the way mediation works and how this can be used by children in their own lives when their may be disagreements between them and their own friends.

I love being an Elephant that blows Rainbows! Read the book if you would like to know more
