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.
Classroom SPOTS Training Online
See the Educator Guides being taught in the classroom! PDFs of all the lessons are included with the corresponding printables. Over 11 precise entertaining video lessons to help you see the little SPOTS in action!
Music for the Classroom!
Integrating music in the classroom can be a wonderful and fun way to teach any subject! We developed a series of songs with catchy tunes to help children enjoy learning emotions even more!
Adorable Learning Toys
These soft and super snugly SPOTS help your child identify and connect with their emotions and feelings!
Beyond the Book Activities
We have discovered that incorporating beyond the book activities not only encourages children to read more but it also helps them retain the information they learned better!
Let customers speak for us
I live these books. Such great value. $1 for each book is a bargain. I bought a box (30 books) and use them as my son’s birthday party favor. Perfect theme!
Please, be mindful when ordering from this company. I spent about $250.00 on these products, and my book set collection is INCOMPLETE. THEY DID NOT SEND ME THE "THANKFUL" SPOT BOOK. I have written 5 emails- no response. I have called the number, and it goes straight to email. I made this purchase weeks ago, and communicated a book was missing weeks, ago, and to this day, I still have not received any contact back that they will send me a new book, refund, whatever. BEWARE WHEN YOU ORDER FROM THIS COMPANY! IF YOU PLACE AN ORDER, AND WHAT YOU ORDERED DOESN'T ARRIVE, GOOD LUCK TRYING TO GET WHAT YOU PAID FOR. THIS COMPANY IS IRRESPONSIBLE, AND ARE NOT BEING HELD ACCOUNTABLE.
Our students are connecting with the kit and loves it! It has been exactly what we needed to help work on these skills!
Anything I buy from the Diane Alber website, I absolutely love!!!
My daughter absolutely loves her Anxiety plush! It's very soft and cuddly.
My students love 💗 these cards. My granddaughter does is 2 years old and she is learning to express herself by using the cards.
Perfect for emotional competence games, teaching and reviewing feelings, increasing emotional vocabulary. I highly recommend this set.
Love using these Feelings and Emotions cards with small groups! Wish I had ordered the larger pack too!
I work in a severe needs classroom and recently purchased this to use with the books. The students and the adults in the room love this and get excited every time Iit gets brought out.
Love, love, love this set. Big, bright and so simple. Perfect for all ages.
Watching my students read and apply the skills taught in A Little Spot of Confidence was building my confidence in knowing I am building SEL competencies with my students. They were excited to get their hands on the books and were thouroughly engaged in reading and discussing. Thank you Diane Alber for your meaningful approach with student appeal! I am a fan and supporter with almost 30 years in primary education. Developing SEL skills by using children's literature is effective as I discovered in my MA SEL Action Research Project!

So far, my pediatric patients are loving this unicorn set! I think it is a lot of fun and it inspires kids to be creative and encouraged. I can’t wait to get the dinosaur set.

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.
