Participants will explore quality children’s literature and learn how to use children’s books to support children’s expression of feelings, learn about social skills and help nurture children’s self concepts. Participants will learn why supporting healthy social and emotional skills is so important in the early years and how educators and caregivers can do so in a play based, non threatening way.
