This is an engaging kids story about how to accept negative emotions. Many parents unconsciously convey that being angry or sad isn’t right. That we must be bold and unexpressive. We should hide our emotions and put on a brave face to the world.
But this attitude is not working. Our children are developing anxiety problems in their teen years. So, we must help our children expresss their emotions in constructive and healthy ways.
This is a story about a young girl from the Gitxsan Nation. She argues with her brother. She finds a stone to share her true feelings with. What a great message for kids.
This engaging First Nation’s story teaches children that its okay to have feelings and shows them how to process them. This is so important in our day of high anxiety and increased instances of suicide.
This is an important book for kids of all ages. Given the prevalence towards depression and anxiety as well as suicide among teens and young adult, a book like this should be read and reread by kids of all ages. It should also be read by parents.
I loved this book from start to finish. What a GREAT story!
