Be Mindful of Monsters: A Book for Helping Children Accept Their Emotions Paperback – Illustrated, September 21, 2020
Enhance your purchase
We all have those feelings at times … the overwhelming ones, the uncomfortable ones, the ones we just want to get away from. For kids in particular, experiencing big feelings can be a major challenge. Written by practicing play therapist Lauren Stockly, Be Mindful of Monsters is a story about the importance of accepting our emotions—even the icky ones—and learning what those feelings are trying to tell us.
Be Mindful of Monsters follows Ezzy, a relatable and gender-neutral nine-year-old whose emotions have grown into monsters. With its engaging story and diverse characters the book can be used at home, in a therapy setting or at school as part of Social Emotional Learning, and includes therapeutic metaphors and activities. You can also download the feelings chart featured in the book for FREE at BumbleBLS.com/Shop. Plus, be sure to check out the supplementary Mindful Monsters Therapeutic Workbook, which is designed to accompany Be Mindful of Monsters with over 100 pages of activities, coloring pages, charts, crafts and more.

Also, the images are so well made and thoughtful, it's like they don't only illustrate the story but add extra insight into the topic.
This is a wonderful work, both Lauren and Ellen made, so thank you very much! I'm sure my students will love it, too❣

The book itself is excellent - there's a story, very nicely illustrated, about a child whose emotions are like scary monsters, and how the child learns to listen to what the emotions are saying, and stop them being frightening. It's a particularly nice touch that the child's gender is never specified so that neither girls not boys worry that it's "not for them".
