The ability of this resource to help children has far reaching effects!
“It helps the child visualize abstract concepts – the feelings. Because it is a playful approach, it helps them stay focused and interested.”
“It give the councilor the opportunity to hear indirectly about the child’s concerns. I ask them “Why do you think this one is sad?, how about this one?” The children tend to make up a story that is similar to their own. when you ask them directly why they are sad, they wouldn’t tell. They might say, “I’m not”. They talk about that very moment.”
“I only used it with a few kids, and started recently. I cannot say what effect it has on changing behavior, but definitely it helps the child communicate and understand about their feelings. I also think that it can help the behavior, when they realize they have control over their feelings.”
“It teaches alternative, more appropriate options to deal with feelings.” – Multiple Counselors at Romanian Orphanage
“This workbook is a HIGHLY effective tool when working with children and helping them identify their feelings. My 5 yr old son and I were the primary focus; however, I found this extremely helpful and fun for the entire family! I recommend for all children and their families- who wouldn’t benefit from learning how to manage your emotions. Aaron has done a fabulous job of making the material relevant and fun. This material is very well done.” – CS
“This has been a wonderful workbook for our kindergartener! He enjoys it and looks forward to working on it. He loves all of the characters and uses the activities throughout the week. It has really helped him understand and identify his feelings. It has helped us, as parents, with useful activities and suggestions when dealing with his feelings too. I would encourage this book for any child!” – Cal – Evergreen, CO
