Picture Books for Kids to Manage their Emotions and Behavior

I recently found picture books that teach character building. I wish that books like these existed when I was growing up. Children need guidance and support from their parents or guardians, from their teachers, and from media. Media would range from books and television to game apps. Anything that they are exposed to that informs them, whether they realize it or not, can be media. This is why it is so important to have the right information available for kids right at their fingertips. Many classrooms, homes and libraries now have books that cater to the socio-emotional needs of a child and it gives me hope that they can lead to great conversations about mindset and self control for children who read them. Topics like managing negative emotions and communicating them in the right way are found in the books below. Each book teaches a different value and they are simplified for young children to understand and I love the way that the books are books are illustrated for kids to want to read them. They are available on Amazon.

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
