Review: Anne Zierty and Sleeping

As a tutor for children with Special Educational Needs ( and a mum of two, I was excited when I came across a new series of children’s books that aim to support children with Autism ( 

The books feature  ‘magical little creatures’ called Orticals who’s role is to help children with their worries and problems.

 We read  ‘Anne Zierty and Sleeping‘,  a book about forgeting your worries and falling asleep easily at bedtime . 

What did I like about it? 

  • It’s unique- From the unusual looking faces of the Orticals to the real bird’s feather that’s included with the story- this book really is quite unique. 

  • It’s aim– I love that this book (and series of books) aims to help children with Autism. 
  • Calming– the book is written in rhyme with detailed descriptions and illustrations helping children to relax. 

  • Pocket size- it is a brilliant size, perfect to fit in your bag- so can be taken easily on trips away and holidays.
