Managing Emotions (Ages 5 to 11)
Recommended books on helping young children aged 5 to 11 years of age on regulating and managing their own emotions.
Power Poems for Giraffes written by Katie Benatovich and Charity Burlingame. Illustrated by Carey Anne Welch.
This book is a multilingual social emotional learning resource for ages 5 to 11 years old.
I absolutely fell in love with the these - each poem is creative and inventive in not only their use of different languages but also in their illustrations and structures! There has been a lot of thought and insight in putting the whole book together.
The authors use the 3Ws perfectly, giving children a wonderful foundation to understand themselves better and their place in the world, allowing them to develop the necessary coping and resilience skills that are needed throughout their lives. I especially enjoyed reading Holding Hands Across the Ocean, Mia Mezzeh, Volcano Inside, Respect Begins With Me and Rainbows in their creativity but also their ability to engage young readers. Plus great use of multilingualism, really nailing the diversity and inclusion initiative.
