Children are emotional little people. Most of the time, it can be difficult for them to describe how they’re feeling, and it can be even harder for caregivers to properly acknowledge a child’s emotions and help them cope.
The Adventures of Napkin Man was created by Yannick Bisson, and has a unique and innovate approach to the social and emotional challenges of being a kid. There are now three e-book apps, each one with its’ own tale of a child facing an emotional challenge. These apps are amazing – they are totally interactive, featuring different activities, songs, and games in each story.
- Penguin-A-Go-Go helps children calm down
- Treasure For All teaches about sharing
- Say Hello helps kids battle shyness
My children love playing with these apps. My daughter enjoys reading the books out loud to her little brother, but there’s also an option for the app to read to you! I love watching them play and interact with the story, but I also love that they’re learning useful tools that can help them with emotional and social challenges in their everyday lives.
My kids were totally immersed in the apps – the music and fun animations were a hit with both a 9 year old and a 33-month old! My daughter laughed at the silly jokes and my son had fun playing the games in the app.
