Being a speech and language pathologist, I see many children with language, learning, and social difficulties having a hard time comprehending abstract concepts like feelings and values. I’ve also noticed that there aren’t much simple fictional children storybooks that focus on teaching social skills. Teachers, parents, and therapists like myself are always in the lookout for great materials that we can use so I wanted to come up with one that can be used by all children, including those with special needs. I made this story simple and direct to the point. I worked with the illustrator to make sure the graphics are easy to understand and they focus on facial expressions.
This project is a result of my love for God and my love for teaching children.
