The Power of Thought on Feelings
This wonderfully illustrated children's book not only introduces young readers to the concept of thought but also to the amazing power of their own thoughts and feelings. Through a rhyming poem, the authors communicate a simple yet profound message: our thoughts create our feelings and behavior, and when our minds are calm, we have access to mindful, healthy feelings and responses. A perfect read-aloud for parents and an important book for all early primary school teachers to share in their mainstream classes. Use this book as a powerful metacognitive teaching tool.

Starving the Anxiety Gremlin for Children
Help kids ages 5-9 understand and manage their anxiety with this engaging and imaginative workbook. Readers are introduced to the anxiety gremlin who feeds and grows on their anxious feelings, and the more anxious they feel, the more powerful it becomes! Packed with puzzles, games, and coloring and drawing activities based on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), this practical and fun book helps children learn strategies to minimize their anxieties by reexamining how they think and act--and empowers them to give the anxiety gremlin the boot. An excellent resource for parents and professionals. Buy the book as part of the bundle, or separately at full price.
Hey Warrior: A Book for Kids About Anxiety
Empower children to manage their anxiety by learning that it comes from a place of protective strength within their brains—the amygdala—a tiny but fierce personal “warrior” that prepares us to fight or flee danger, even when we don’t need or want its protection! Wonderful illustrations and keen insights gently teach children how to be the boss of their brains and let their warriors know when to stand down and relax through positive thinking and breathing exercises. By understanding the physical science of anxiety and why their brains produce it, children can then learn to master it as a positive, friendly superpower.

Engaging and easy to read, this award-winning and illustrated children's book is filled with opportunities for children to participate in developing their own self-calming strategies to feel relaxed and ready to focus on work—or play.

It’s human nature to want to help others, but it’s often difficult for people to ask for help, especially those with social emotional learning differences. In this webinar, we’ll discuss why children, students, and adults may resist help or refuse to ask for it and we’ll deconstruct the multi-step process through which we ask for help. We’ll also explore the social emotional benefits for all participating in this unique and rewarding relationship.

Chronic stress and anxiety can impact children’s ability to focus and learn, whether it’s in the classroom or through an online education portal. Helping children metacognitively explore their stress is the first step toward their self-regulation, and this metacognitive understanding also helps interventionists (parents and professionals) learn how to avoid creating even more stressors for children during the pandemic
