Free Spirit Publishing has some really wonderful books that really talks to a child. We have been privileged to review many of their books and my son has learned quite a lot from their books.
I want to introduce you to a new series of books that I would highly recommend. It is aptly called the "Our emotions and behaviour" series. Though it is a good fit for young readers to develop reading skills, it has benefited my toddler much in terms of recognizing his emotions and how to resolve conflicts caused by negative emotions.
The books depict instances that children often come across in an everyday setting - daycare, park, play dates etc. That makes it extremely easy for the child to understand and relate to what is being said. The illustrations blend very well with the text and it helps attract and keep the attention of the child.
The very first day the books arrived, my son told me to read the books one after another. Each time we read one of the books in this series, it is followed by the other three books! Truly, you will have to experience these books with your child to know and appreciate their worth! My son is very squirmy and he sat quietly with each of these books.
Some words in the text standout from the rest to emphasize the context, emotions being dealt with etc. The books also emphasize the importance of rules in simple ways. I even used my son's friends' names for the characters and he could directly relate to the situation. It is a great tool for parents and teachers!
Books make priceless gifts! These books are sure to be read and loved for a long time. Children will love to see this little bundle with cheerful illustrations!
