Inspiring, Creativity, Empowering books for kids 4+
We’ve heard from numerous educators that they sometimes feel like they are on an island with very little help in sight. That is why we created numerous Educator Resources. We spent months talking with teachers, counselors, and homeschool parents, and listening to what they would need to make teaching EMOTIONS both educational and fun. Every item we carry is carefully designed and selected to fit a specific need.

Birthday Celebration Plush Toy and Book Set
We love Little Spot series and use at our childcare as part of our curriculum from infants to Prek. We use the Little Spot books as birthday books for children. Our 4 year olds receive A Little Spot of Kindness and our 5 year olds receive A Little Spot of Confidence. It is a wonderful way to connect the families to the language we use at child care/Prek and a fun gift. The children LOVE them.

Teacher Lanyard A Little SPOT
My son with autism is in love with all Diane Alber’s “spot” books. They have taught him so much about emotions! Can’t say enough good things. Even my neurotypical daughter makes sure she is included in reading time because she too loves these books! And she is a huge fan of the Unicorn series.
The little of emotions are a big hit in my classroom. I have students that love having them on their desks while they work!!!
Son’s class was super excited about them. And the teachers have now bought the series because they enjoy them so much.
Such a great curriculum! Thank you for making it digital☺️

A Little SPOT of...
The “Inspire to Create a Better You!” series was originally developed to help children visualize their emotions as spots so it would be easier to identify and manage them. It later developed to explain hard topics like kindness, responsibility and honesty to encourage discussion in a fun simple way that children can understand. This series stays relevant and can be an essential learning tool for children. They can be used for social skills, life skills, whole-group lessons, and all those teachable moments in between.
Fun for the classroom! Added Jingle!
This series has near-infinite replayability" not only as story books but arts activities as well. They help children understand that something as simple as a scribble or a snippet can not only be a great story but a masterpiece as well. It gives children confidence to create their own art despite their artistic ability while teaching them important lessons in empathy, kindness and inclusion.
Never let a unicorn…
This is a humorous series that weaves together art principles, believing in yourself, character traits, empathy and educational standards. This series specifically brings in how imagination plays into a child’s learning.
