Books to Help Children Successfully Navigate Life’s Challenges
Reading allows children to develop social skills, build their “empathy muscle”, and develop their vocabularies.
Each of the books focus on a different life event. In Roxie the Doxie Finds Her Forever Home, we follow Roxie from her foster home to her forever home, watching as she experiences a variety of emotions through the experience. In Roxie the Doxie The New Dog At School, Roxie is the new student at a school, and just as a child would have to quickly learn new skills and make new friends, Roxie must face many real life scenarios over her first week at school.
Both books allow a parent or caregiver to start a conversation about challenges in a non threatening, engaging and fun fashion. Both books come with a parent conversation guide written by a clinician, intended to help parents craft a conversation with a child.
