Thursday, April 8, 2021

What an adorable book. Each letter of the alphabet matched with an animal starting with that letter and feelings also starting with that letter--and all in rhymes!! The illustrations are superb!

Children all love animals and also love rhymes. They will learn a lot about feelings and friends as you read this book to them and may get them to tell you the feelings they have that they do not understand.

A big plus is you will love reading this book to them as well--and don't be surprised if you start saying some of the rhymes to yourself!

Emma Lou and Pearl return with some old and new friends in Emma Lou the Yorkie Poo: Alphabet, Feelings and Friends. Join them as they experience, through a collection of whimsical rhymes, a wide range of emotions. From A to Z, Emma Lou and Pearl invite children to bring emotions to life and provide reassurance that all feelings are expected and accepted. 

To cope with our changing world during this vulnerable time in our history, children now more than ever need to feel free to express their fears, worries and joys. Alphabet, Feelings and Friends is a resource for parents, educators and mental health workers to assist children in developing meaningful discussions and insight into their present experiences. 

"In a short period of time, readers--and the adults who care for them--can review the brightly colored pages of this alphabet book. This A-Z guide provides rich examples of social and emotional growth experiences for children that can be utilized at home, in the classroom or at therapy spaces." -- Theresa Fraser, CYC-P, CPT-S, RP, MA, RTC, author of We're Not All the Same, But We're Family 

"Kim Larkins has written a sweet book that introduces young children to 26 emotions that align with each letter of the alphabet. She uses animal characters, rhymes and fanciful pictures as the vehicle for describing that mindful activities can influence how one feels." -- Laurie Zelinger, PhD, ABPP, RPT-S, board certified psychologist and author, former director: New York Association for Play Therapy 

"With delightful illustrations and lovely rhymes, this book is a must for any educator, parent or caregiver who wants to help children learn about and manage their emotions. Don't miss this opportunity to journey through the alphabet with delightful pups Emma Lou and Pearl and discover a little mindfulness too! " -- Kellie Doyle Bailey, MA CCC-SLP, MMT/SELI, author of Some Days I Flip My Lid, Some Nights I Flip My Lid - Learning to be Calm Cool Kids

"This book is an interesting resource to be used with one or more children as part of an educational or therapeutic process. It supports children in start learning how to recognize and manage feelings. I appreciate the background message implying, and somehow inviting to consider, that in difficult times we are not alone and we can rely on others. The use of the rhymes makes the text involving and pleasant to be read (or listened) out loud." -- Isabella Cassina, MA, TP-S, CAGS, PhD Student, INA International Academy for Play Therapy studies and PsychoSocial Project

I don't have any children, but if I did, I would take them to the movies, because there may be a movie they really want to see.

If one of the kids was feeling down, I would tell them a really good funny joke.

If my child was feeling down, I would talk to them about why, and let them feel down if they need to

Dawn Keenan said...

I usually will tell a somewhat funny joke to help them forget about their problem. Later I'd address the problem when they weren't so upset.

slehan said...

I ask what she's thankful for.
Thanks for the contest.

Betty C said...

I would bring our family dog and ask them to tell our pet why they are unhappy.

megana said...

I always do something fun with them they like to do to get them comfortable. Then we talk and I let them know I am here for them.
