Dr Steele Fitchett began his medical profession as an obstetrician and gynaecologist. Seeing a need for spiritual and emotional healing, he became involved in counselling. He is a qualified medical specialist with a great deal of experience with families, especially with regard to abuse, co-dependency and grief. His focus has been to help people connect in a real way, with their woundedness, their authentic self, with others and with God’s unconditional love. His book, ‘Being Real’, is a valuable resource for self worth and the importance of the vital connection between our heads and our hearts.

These toys have their own personality and come with small cushions with the name of a variety of emotions written on them, each with a facial expression. An instruction booklet is included. These characters were developed to teach kids identify and process their feelings.

At Bug in a Book we really love those books which tackle an important theme, they are a great way to help children understand special topics and break down barriers.  We have recently implemented a VIB program (Very Important Bug's) which is more or less a working partnership with authors. See our website for the latest in quality children's books and author article contributions. We have various areas that can be used for inspiration: Bug Kids Club activities, teachers or parents resources or general literacy and author information.
