Fun!

The kids and I love them. We used the. Yo make ornaments for Christmas.

A must for every classroom!

The Little Spot books can easily be integrated with any SEL curriculum and are fun and engaging! They help foster learning and growth in all the competencies that support students achieve academic success, school and civic engagement, and most importantly, health and wellness.

Kids love them!

These books are so helpful in the classroom and virtually to discuss emotions and how to handle them. I love all Diane Alber’s books and so do my students!

Scribble Stones

I gave this book to my 8 year old grandson and he and his 10 year old sister had so much fun drawing and using the stickers that I will be buying another book of stickers. They love to draw and this adds fun to the characters they create.

Loved!

Such a wonderful book and the bonus stickers made it even better. My grandsons have already painted the rocks, decorating with stickers next, and then to scatter around the neighborhood.
Great job.

This book has so many positive things to talk about!

Simplicity
The author manages to explain the anger emotion and provide a coping mechanism for the emotion in a most simple way. In addition to explaining emotions, the author also has simple drawings in the book that keeps children engaged.

Examples
The author explains the anger emotion well and even provides examples that every child can relate to! My boys are 4 and 6. They related immediately to the examples provided in the book about when the spot of anger emotion can grow bigger.

Helpful
This has been one of the most helpful books I've read to my children in reference to managing the anger emotion. I've taught my boys some coping strategies to managing their emotions. Some involve holding and object like a silicone sponge to squeeze. However, they aren't going to be carrying around that sponge everywhere they go! This book focuses on an exercise with the children's fingers, hand, and breathing. That is something they can do wherever they are!

I made a photo copy of the hand and little chart of emotions to identify and taped them onto the wall in our house. It's a reminder to the boys that if they feel the anger spot, to do the hand and breathing exercises to calm down.

I highly recommend this book for anyone who is an influence in a child's life. Even if you think the child understands emotions, this looks at emotions from a different perspective!

When I initially received the book and saw the age group was 2-6, I panicked a little! LoL
I read the story and realized the life lesson was valuable no matter if you were 2 or 102! I proceeded with my middle schoolers, 6th-8th grades and we had the greatest time with this project!! I learned so much about my kids. Most of their scribbles were light hearted and fun, but some were very deep and emotional. One has recently lost a parent, some were struggling with acceptance, ups and downs of friendships, and hardships at home. The conversations were amazing and so very rewarding. My students opened up about so many things and took notice of being empathetic to others. The kids enjoyed telling their �Scribble stories� to their classmates and staff! We�ve even had some teachers to stop by and read the book and create their own Scribble. Thanks so much for this wonderful story that teaches such an important lesson and reinforces my favorite topic�kindness!! 5 stars just isn�t enough!

It has stickers so that it is interactive along with a cute story. I'm an artist, so I love to do art with my grandson. Making art should be fun, not restrictive and judged, or graded. Some of our greatest artists have made scribbles that are in museums, so why force arbitrary rules on children. The words, creative and freedom, are synonymous in my vocabulary. Kudos to this author.

My son loves this series and keeps asking for more. These books explain important concepts in child-friendly language with real-life examples. He also loves to point out the connections across books. I'm hoping that some of the author's other series (specifically the unicorn one) will be released as a boxed set too!

Mindfulness can be a hard topic for kids to grasp without being bored, but this book is written in such a way that it makes sense to them. Kids like to feel at peace, and this book gives them tangible ways to work to find their peaceful spot. I highly recommend this book!

This book is such a great tool for anyone who works with kids. It has clear, cute illustrations and instructions and tips on how to identify emotions an calm yourself down.

I wish I’d done an “unboxing” video of this book set. My kids (especially my 7 year old), couldn’t get through them fast enough. He read all 8 in one afternoon and expressed repeatedly how much he enjoyed them! I love them so much. He was able to relate to so many things and applied them To real life (speaking out loud about different examples mentioned in
the book). One thing he read in the book that sticks out for me was that it’s easy to give up when things are hard, and that it can be frustrating, but to keep trying! He said “that happens to me all the time and I can do better next time”. I then overheard him telling his younger brother (3) that there’s a “spot” with us all the time but we can’t see it. It’s really special. I haven’t even read them yet but their reaction to them makes buying this set worth it already. A+

My kids (5-8) didn't know what the word anxiety was before we started reading this book. Not only did the book answer all of their questions but it helped them visualize their worries and gave real tips to visualize and blow away their anxiety. It's so important to teach our kids these emotional skills BEFORE they get to middle school age and high school when anxiety really becomes prevalent. Highly recommend for all bedrooms and classrooms.

This book is just another great masterpiece by Diane! This book is going to be a HUGE help with my class of 4 year olds! I absolutely love it and can’t wait to read it to them! I’m also thinking of crafts/activities to do with this book already. I just read it to my daughter and she loved it. It was so cute seeing her try to do the finger spots.
