We are loving these three books!
The adventures of Shubert the Firefly give kids–and adults–real-life examples of coping skills and conflict resolution techniques. I really wish I’d had them when First Shift of Kids were of a younger age; it would have helped all three of us have an example of how to deal with meltdowns, fighting, teasing, and more. The text by Dr. Becky Bailey shows the kids how to choose to be STARs, and she also models for adults how to deescalate our own frustrations when dealing with frustrated children. The illustrations by James Hrkach are lively without being too busy, which is important for kids whose frustration often comes from issues with visual discrimination. Highly recommended on all counts!
