Playstories is all about transforming children into protagonists to develop self-identity and spark interest in reading. In our social-emotional learning (SEL) collection, kids and their families will read stories about feelings to help children deal with their emotions.
What family doesn’t want to raise happy and successful children? This is certainly the dream of all parents and guardians, even though many face challenges teaching their children the way to happiness and self-fulfillment.
A study recently published by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) found that teaching social-emotional skills in childhood provides advantages in adulthood. This is because the context in which the Alpha Generation children are developing has new challenges, such as contact with different stimuli and technology from the first years of life. According to specialists, these challenges can be overcome through the joint development of socio-emotional intelligence and academic skills, both at school and at home.
In this post, we selected books about feelings to read with children. During the reading, the little ones will get to know different emotions in a playful and fun way, in addition to learning how to deal with them in their daily life. Books personalized with the child’s name and avatar encourage protagonism and contribute to the child’s development.
