To help children of kindergarten age and younger process the events of a natural disaster, the Queensland Centre for Perinatal and Infant Mental Health has released a suite of free resources and stories to support children's understanding of storms, cyclones, floods or fire.

Birdie’s Tree is a series of five storybooks that can be read in hard copy or on a computer or mobile device. You can choose from Birdie and the Cyclone, Birdie and the Flood, Birdie and the Fire, Birdie and the Earthquake and Birdie and the Drought.

Parents, educators and carers can play interactive games with children online or find information to help them support babies and young children through extreme weather.

Educators and Adults can use these resources at any time to help build children’s resilience.
