My Quiet Adventures, Picture Books for Highly Sensitive Children - All Too Much for Oliver - Oliver and his parents sharing a book
Welcome, parents!


Whether you are here because your child is highly sensitive or simply because your child might enjoy our stories, we thank you for being here.


If you are still unsure about whether or not your child is

highly sensitive and would like to find out, please visit

Dr. Elaine Aron’s site and take the self-test.


Dr. Elaine Aron has been researching “high sensitivity” since the early '90s, a character trait found in 20% of the population. It is normal, beautiful, and has recently been found to be the result of genetic programming. Highly sensitive people and children will feel things more deeply, think more thoroughly, and take in way more from their environments than those who are not highly sensitive. Being highly sensitive can allow us to lead very rich and meaningful lives, but can also cause us to feel overwhelmed and misunderstood.


The topic of high sensitivity is quickly gaining popularity. A world of information is now available for both highly sensitive people and parents of highly sensitive children.
