The Friend I Need: Being Kind & Caring to Myself (Growing Heart & Minds) Paperback – September 1, 2020
Enhance your purchase
The pressures they feel are real. Unfortunately, so is the negative self-talk that can sometimes follow when they make mistakes or when emotions are strong. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
Most children have probably spent time in school or at home learning how to be good friends to others, but what about learning to be good friends to themselves?
The Friend I Need helps children understand that the same qualities they look for in a friend— kindness, support, understanding, they can offer to themselves when they’re having a hard time.
Learning to be a friend to themselves helps children build emotional resilience, growth mindset, and well-being.
A perfect addition to your home or school social-emotional library! Parents and educators can find FREE downloadable activities to accompany this book at gabigarciabooks.com.
The Friend I Need is part of the Growing Hearts & Minds picture book series that supports children in developing a caring and compassionate understanding of themselves and their emotions.
(Available in Spanish as La Amistad Que Necesito.)
