What I Loved:
This book is focused on helping a young child learn tools for handling their emotions. I loved that these actions related to animals. I think that a tool that connects to something they already know will make it much easier to remember!
How I Felt:
My Sister’s Super Skills is written to help children learn coping mechanisms for emotions. I liked that this is written as an actual story. My daughter was very engaged in the story, following along and learning with David as his sister teaches him these tools. Each tool is connected to an animal so they are easier for kids to remember. My daughter particularly loved the horse one and practiced it several times before I was allowed to move on to the next one.
Overall, there are so many great techniques for children and I think that my only “complaint” is that I would like to see these broken out into more books, but maybe that will be coming someday!
To Read or Not To Read:
My Sister’s Super Skills is the perfect story to be read to children from preschool through middle elementary. With easy to understand tools, this is excellent for a classroom or library and at home!
