Note to Parent:
Children love colors, rainbows, and turtles. This is a wonderful introduction for kids to feel how colors can affect their mood and ability to relax. Every child has a different emotional maturity, attention span, and need. While the stories are best suited for ages 4-9, do not let this be your primary reason for selecting. You know your child best and remember this is not about the reading level. The focus is on the actual techniques.
“A Boy and A Turtle” is the easiest, most effective way I have found to help children visualize to reduce stress, relax and an excellent way for children to manage anxiety and fears.” – Dr.Susan Russell, L.M.S.W
