This workshop will introduce the idea of using children’s literature as a way to nurture children’s social and emotional development. Through book sharing, we can help children explore topics such as: developing healthy expressions of anger, mindfulness, labeling feelings, developing personal boundaries and making friends. In addition to book sharing, participants will learn how to create meaningful play-based experiences that extend from the books they explore with children in their care.
Suitable for child care providers of children 2 years of age and up.
