This beautifully illustrated and empathetically written book walks children through a calming activity that focuses their attention on God and helps them manage their emotions.
Through a combination of slow breathing, prayer, and focusing on five things about God and his good gifts, children will learn to count themselves calm. Children can practise this calming activity while you read them the book and then use it when they feel upset, sad, angry, worried, anxious, or scared.
This resource is a great tool to equip children 4-7 years old to regulate their emotions and calm down.
Written by Eliza Huie, Director of Counseling at McLean Bible Church, Arlington, who has worked with children in a biblical counselling capacity.
