Spark the dragon lives happily with his parents and baby sister, but then his mum and dad start to argue, and sometimes to fight. When Spark and his sister get injured, they have to go and live with a foster carer, who helps them understand their situation.

This engaging picture book looks at the difficult issue of domestic violence and what this could mean for the children involved. Spark and Flame learn to understand why they cannot live with their birth parents anymore, and to come to terms with their painful emotions.

The book is accompanied by practical guidelines for adults reading the story with children that provide examples of questions and statements to encourage and initiate interaction.

Who is this book for?

Ideal for social workers, foster parents or residential workers to use with children aged 3-7 who have been affected by domestic violence.
