About the book

the magic home is a psychoeducational book for children written and illustrated by isabella cassina

The Magic Home is a story for those who believe in magic, to turn fear into bravery and let fantasies run wild!

This is a tale of a little boy that lives with his family, plays happily in the courtyard with his brother, sister, a brown dog and a fluffy white rabbit, and cannot wait to start school. Suddenly he has to leave for an unpredictable journey...

The Magic Home, written and illustrated by Isabella Cassina, Therapeutic Play Specialist recognized by the APTI and PhD Student in Expressive Arts Therapy, offers psychoeducational support for children, parents and childhood professionals who are assisting children through the difficult transition of displacement.

The author presents a guide for caregivers grounded in the principles of Play Therapy that allows children to be engaged in a dynamic and engaging process based on their capacities and the objectives defined by a caring adult.

The book is ideal for easy reading with individuals and groups, and the suggested activities can be used between parent and child, at school, in a healthcare agency or any other place where children spend time.

The book is distributed in United States, Canada, United Kingdom and Australia.
