Amazon Description: When children venture away from their home for the first time, they begin learning new things in another world as known as school. From the classroom to the playground, children are met with many learning opportunities for themselves and with their peers. These early hands-on experiences are effective learning tools for social and emotional skills. Self-management, problem-solving, and compassion are a few of the important traits that need to be developed day by day. While children are encouraged to make mistakes to learn lessons at times, teachers must explain explicitly how emotions arise and how children notice them in their everyday lives.
How should I say it when someone is mean to me? What should I do when my friend doesn’t want to play with me? How do I know it is going to be okay?
In My Breath Loves Me, four colorful and engaging illustrated episodes teach children how to handle when strong emotions may occur, how to notice possible body sensations that arise, and how strong emotions can transform into calmness by using their own breaths. Children explore different ways of breathing techniques that feel more like simply playing games. Each familiar scene consists of thoughtful illustrations by Galyna Vasylyshyn, showing a trigger, pause, notice, and response sequence.
Children in the world and their caretakers will appreciate knowing that they possess a lifetime tool given to them when they were born and that they are able to learn when and how to use it.
Most days we post a link to a free (at time of post) Kindle download for kids/young adults. One of the most important things we can do as parents is read with our kids! Exposure to reading can help children with early literacy and pave the way for success in school (and beyond!) as they get older.
Our hope is that these posts will help keep your digital library fresh with new material perfect for bedtime reading with babies, toddlers, preschoolers, school-aged, and even teens. You do not need a kindle to download or read these books with your child, just download the Kindle App to your device, or use the Kindle Cloud Reader on your computer. Enjoy!
