As we approach school re-opening in a few weeks, many first timers will know what social anxiety feels like…whether it’s kindergarten, middle, freshman year or whatever the “new normal” may be for an adult facing new challenges or circumstances.
This premiere book featuring The Tanglelows, the first installment in a series, teaches children how to navigate their feelings and encourages abstract thought, while giving families a tool for voicing their emotions. The Tanglelows, illustrated by Jessa Orr, has already been hailed as “a great family read” which “stimulates rich discussion” by Dr. Mary Baker-Ericzén of the Child and Adolescent Services Research Center, who also called it “a useful tool for psychologists to use in treatment.”
