Kia ora! I'm Katie Pye, a New Zealand-based super-sleuth intent upon revealing the truth behind traditional fairytales, as well as helping you kickstart well-being conversations with your kids ...naturally. Thanks for visiting my author page! I'm excited to share my launching Fairytale Fraud series with you. It's been critically appraised by my own three kids, as well as tested on children, parents, teachers, librarians, and even psychologists! I got a team together to test the stories and accompanying resources and these are some of their responses - 'something unique', 'completely awesome', 'great resource', 'playful humour', 'unexpected twists', 'delightful pictures', 'highly entertaining' ... i could go on, but find out for yourself! Join me as I progressively launch twisted fairytales on the topics of: * Gratitude with Trip Trap Trouble (Three Billy Goats Gruff) * Healthy Habits and Getting on with it with Ready for Rescue? (Rapunzel) * Adapting to Change with Breaking News! (Humpty Dumpty) * Managing Conflict with Sibling Wars (Hansel and Gretel) * Taking Advice with Dressed in the Best (The Emperor's New Clothes) * Healthy Grief and Social Media with The Lost Years (Sleeping Beauty) * Trusting Wisely with The Wolf Strikes Again (The Three Little Pigs) * Communicating Well with The Cooking Disaster (The Little Red Hen) * Self Worth and Perfectionism with The Mirror's Truth (Snow White) * Self Confidence with Shoes to Shine (Puss N Boots) * Being Yourself with A Ruffio Day. * Pursuing your Goals with Cinderella's Dream (Cinderella) * Considering Others with The Giant's Treasure (Jack and the Beanstalk) I'd like to make life a little easier for busy parents. In fact, I'd like to create 10,000 moments for parents and their children - moments of laughter, connection, insight, whatever! You can check out how I am doing with that lofty goal on www.headstartthinking.com. So, choose a topic and begin! I'd love you to join the growing community that are making important conversations happen with this fun and engaging resource. Enjoy a story together and have a parenting WIN at the same time!
"WOW I am actually blown away!! I was a little nervous about
how Katie was going to pull this off without sounding a bit preachy
but there is such a lovely gentleness in her delivery that the
message, while clear, comes through with kindness and understanding
setting just the right space to start a conversation.How
Katie managed to do this while still keeping the stories
laugh-out-loud fun is what's really impressive!
An outstanding achievement!! Bravo!" "What a great story to start discussions about gratitude. The Behind the Scenes prompts are fantastic. A fun story to share as a family!" - Teacher and mother of 2
