A Story to Help Children Overcome Bedwetting While Discovering Self-Appreciation
By Joyce C Mills, PhD & Richard J Crowley, PhD. Illustrated by Germaine Cook
Sammy the Elephant and Mr. Camel is a delightful story that children and their parents can appreciate on two levels: It can help children overcome the problem of bedwetting, while it enhances the self-esteem of children of all ages.
Sammy is a lovable little elephant who keeps spilling his buckets of water. As the story unfolds, Sammy, together with the reader, is re-introduced to his own inner strengths and abilities, as Mr. Camel guides him in remembering how many things he can do well. When a crisis occurs – a fire near the circus – Sammy saves the day. He emerges from his experience with a new sense of self-appreciation.
Children reading the story, or having it read to them, will learn new ways to feel better about themselves. And most importantly, they will have a lot of fun.
