Books that my children enjoy and teach valuable lessons are some of our absolute favorites. Well, and the ones that just make us laugh too, but we’ll save those for a different day. We recently discovered the Slumberkins book series and let me tell you, WE LOVE THEM! We own 5 of them and are working on getting all 15.
Slumberkins is a series of 15 books currently and they are grouped into the lessons they teach. These three groups are caring, confidence, and resilience. Within these groups, the books go further and teach emotional skills. This list of emotional skills that are covered is massive!
The books were written by two women that are best friends. One has a masters in k-9 education and other in family therapy and school counseling. The way these women are able to cover such difficult subjects for such a young age group is absolutely incredible. I admit at least one pulled on my childhood heartstrings to the point where I had tears in my eyes.
Each book has a creature that tells the story and you have the option to buy the stuffed animal. The books also end with affirmations that the child repeats after you. It is truly beautiful. There is also a little bit at the end for adult reflection. Not only do these books encourage our children’s emotional growth, but they also tap into ours.
I highly recommend these! Please share your favorite books in the comments below.
