Unseen Worlds Adams, K. (2010)
Unseen Worlds
Jessica Kingsley Publishers.

Unseen Worlds explores children's experiences of creative play, fairies, angels, imaginary friends, dreams and seeing deceased relatives alongside the more frightening realms of nightmares and the unexplained. It breaks new ground by giving voice to children of various ages to express how they encounter these different worlds and why they often keep them silent. Kate Adams emphasises that whilst many adults forget what it feels like to be a child, developing a little empathy and understanding can enhance relationships with children. The results can be positive, enabling children to explore their spirituality more fully, enhancing the professional and personal relationships between children and adults in the process.
