Extraordinary Lives Foundation Founder and CEO Mara James releases her debut children’s picture book to promote Mental Health Awareness and Wellness!

Do you ever feel sad, lonely, or worried? What about angry, or scared? These feelings can be hard to fell, can't they? It would be much easier to just feel happy all the time! But everyone feels these ways sometimes, and it's nothing to be scared or worried about. As long as you know helpful ways to handle your feelings, everything will be OK! And that is what Piggie Bear is for! Piggie Bear shows children everywhere just how amazing they are, each and everyone. And Piggie Bear also shows children different techniques they can use to work through emotions that are hard to feel and understand. The Power of Piggie Bear is an important emotional tool, created for young children to learn how to identify, process, and manage their own feelings in a healthy way.

Mara Reads THE POWER OF PIGGY BEAR

 

MY REVIEW
The Power of Piggie Bear is an adorable children's book that deals with feelings. It's a book that shows kids it's okay to feel a variety of emotions, and how to work through the negative ones. As a parent to an autistic six year old and a teenage boy, I know all about big, negative emotions that can happen at any time. This book makes tackling them (with my younger son) more fun. The illustrations are bright and colorful, and the story is easy to read.  Piggie Bear is a great book for helping children process emotions when they get to be too much sometimes. 
Highly recommend for parents and young readers.
5 stars!
