Wow. People reacted so strongly and positively to my recent children’s literature post Llama Llama Holiday Drama, I will continue to make kid lit recommendations that address social and emotional roadblocks, challenges and difficulties our sensory kids face. Personally, I have found reading picture books with my children an incredible way to help frame an issue they may be dealing with and opening up a dialogue about how to handle it.
That said, here’s this week’s recommended kid lit reading:
Book: Scaredy Squirrel Prepares for Christmas: A Safety Guide for Scaredies
