Is the Witch in Love? Help Her Understand the Feeling

To charm the Sorcerer Merlinor, the Witch goes all out to change her appearance.

The topic of falling in love is definitely not for kids. But, kids who are approaching their teenage years may already be familiar with the concept. Perhaps this group of audience is the main target for Slim Cricket, the developer of series such as The Witch with No Name and Peepo the Elf, when they developed their next storybook: Is the Witch in Love?

It’s based on the fact that the Witch has never been in love before. In this story, she goes all out to find the love of her life with the help of her bat friend Batina.

Daniel Tiger's Grr-ific Feelings Wants to Help Kids Learn about Their Feelings

Daniel Tiger’s Grr-ific Feelings includes 18 music videos to show examples of how Daniel and his friends are experiencing the different feelings.

My boys love the Daniel Tiger TV series. Maybe it’s the fact that Daniel is a four-year-old tiger that makes the stories easy for my kids to relate to. They also enjoy playing the Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood apps. The first app, called Play at Home, lets kids get familiar with Daniel and his home. The second app, Day & Night, focuses more on his morning and night routines.

Just recently, PBS Kids released a brand new Daniel Tiger’s app called Grr-ific Feelings. It is designed to help kids learn more about their feelings through various examples in Daniel’s life.

Wince - Don't Feed the Worry Bug

As a parent, sometimes I am trapped with an imbalanced set of goals when it comes to my juniors' growth. It is certainly much easier to measure the growth of their cognitive skills instead of their emotional wellness. Sometimes, we need a better tool to help us understand what is going on inside their heads.

Today I would like to share about a brand new storybook app that I believe would be able to assist parents in starting discussions with their juniors about emotions, especially worry. It is called Wince - Don't Feed the Worry Bug and is suitable for juniors aged 6-11. The story is written and illustrated by Andi Green, an industry-acclaimed storyteller with a great passion to guide juniors to learn more about their emotions.
