I have been looking for books that would help me teach my kids emotional awareness, how to manage their thoughts and selves. I wanted a tool to begin navigating these complex subjects in a kid-friendly manner - subjects many adults struggle with. I found exactly what I was looking for in these books. I highly, highly recommend!
A much needed primer on social awareness for kids. I was blown away by the simplicity of these rhyming verses which address the complex topics of kindness and social awareness for children. The authors descriptive phrases make it easy for children to relate to the words and the concepts presented in this book. As an early childhood educator I find great value in the lessons to be found here and the skill with which the author has presented them in an age appropriate manner. Kudos!
Thoughtful and perfect for the mental health of children. I love this book. Getting children to realize they can let go of negative thoughts and not hold them in is so key. Children have a rough time expressing themselves when they think something sad or bad. So great. I wish I had this book when I was a child!
