A book that teaches to increase your childs emotional language. Research shows if a child knows the word for the feeling than half of the emotinal regulation is complete. If you teach them the words their brain has a chance to make sense of their world. I read two emotions most nights and we both give each other examples of when we have felt this emotion.
This clever book teaches children about anxiety by explaining to them how their brain works. It takes them on a adventure to understand their, amygdala! They learn that their amygdala tries to protect them and we can talk to it, hey amygdala thanks for the warning but i got this! My children have even created their own amygdala from clay.
When I first read this book to my children I was in awe. It tells a story about a bug who is grieving. It teaches them the stages of grief.
