Different Home, A – A new Foster Child’s Story


Written in simple language, this storybook is designed to help children aged 4-10 who are moving into care to settle in, and answer some of the questions they are likely to have. Accompanied by notes for adults on how to use the story with children, it will be a useful book for foster parents and caseworkers, as well as social workers, teachers and anyone else caring for children in foster care.

In A Different Home, Jessie tells us her story of being placed in foster care. At first she is worried and has lots of questions. The new home is not like her old home-she has a different bedroom, different clothes, and there’s diffrent food for breakfast. She also misses her family. When Jim and Debbie, her foster parents, answer her questions she begins to feel better and see that this different home is kind of nice.
