"When little people are overwhelmed by big emotions, it's our job to share our calm, not to join their chaos." ―L.R. Knost
Unwrapping Some Illustrations for you
This informative board book teaches a valuable life lesson to both the young and old. Adults need to be the calming influence in a little one's life when they are overwhelmed with feelings that they cannot control that upset them greatly. It is the adult's role to soothe, protect and administer unconditional love so a child can recognize these overpowering feelings and learn how to dissipate them. Loving adults can rock a wee one by snuggling them in close and rocking them back and forth, hold onto their hands as they walk along together, use a gentle soothing voice, and help their child to understand those big feelings and how to let them go, just to name a few.
"Calm" has real life photos that perfectly enhance the message that the author is presenting. The themes in this book include: co-regulation, feelings, mindfulness, babies and toddlers and parenting. I highly recommend "Calm."
