Unwrapping Some Illustrations
This is a very helpful and important book especially at this particular time in our history. Due to the COVID pandemic our beloved children have been subjected to lockdowns, vaccines, isolation from friends and family, wearing masks, social distancing and online learning. Kids find themselves faced with emotional stress over many other things in their lives also and they need guidance and help to process the meaning of these feelings and how to contain and manage them.
"A Monster Handbook: A Toolkit of Strategies and Exercise to Help Children Manage BIG Feelings" can help identify these persistent monsters and bring kids understanding and peace. It gives kids the power to become conquerers thus dispelling themselves of negativity and replacing positivity and calm to their minds, bodies and spirits.
The book is full of practical and attainable ways to reach these goals successfully. The author has included extra fun bonuses at the end : monster card cutouts, inspirational cards to tuck into pockets, a monster mood tree, and breathing exercises that will bring relaxation and resolve, just to name a few.
The monsters portrayed are kid-friendly and the illustrations are colourful and enrich the message of the book greatly. Viegas has checked every box to make this book a must have and a winner. I highly, highly recommend it.
