Learning Coping Skills

Young children often can’t communicate why they’re upset and what they need in order to feel better. B is for Breathe addresses this by acknowledging children’s emotions and teaching kids coping skills. The book uses an A to Z sequence to provide suggestions on ways children can express their fussy and frustrating feelings in a healthy way. It also teaches them calm-down strategies.

Examples include “A is for Art: Draw or paint to help express emotions” and “B is for Breathe: Breathe by slowly taking a deep breath in through your nose and slowly breathing out through your mouth.”

Each page features colorful, expressive illustrations that capture the reader’s attention. Diverse characters throughout the book allow children from all backgrounds to see themselves. Representation is important for kids to relate and engage in the story.

B is for Breathe is a great resource for children, parents, and educators to access techniques to help little ones manage their emotions in a positive way. Readers around the world agree. B is for Breathe is currently the #1 Best Seller in Children’s First Aid Books on Amazon.
