Perfect for Read-Aloud and SEL

HARDCOVER or BOARD BOOK

SALE $15.63(Original Price $24.99)


Social and emotional learning is becoming widely acknowledged as a critical component in raising well-adjusted kids. Teaching kids the right language to use helps them deal with strong emotions when they arise.

"El Monstruo de Colores" provides necessary vocabulary to identify emotions and have meaningful conversations with your little ones. Once a child is able to identify an emotion and understand that it's normal, it's much easier to help them cope. This Spanish book is perfect for teaching those early lessons.

One of my biggest challenges has been speaking Spanish during moments of frustration, discipline, and anger. In the beginning, I was limited to "¿Estes bravo?" and "¿Estes feliz?" Thanks in part to this book, I now have a lot more vocabulary to work with!

My children loved “El Monstruo.” The illustrations are simple and expressive. It’s easy to fall in love with the characters – especially the monster. The text is short but rich, and it helps amplify your emotional vocabulary with your child. This is an important book that can be used throughout those challenging years of emotional outbursts!

This book has been translated and sold throughout the world. It is a staple in Spain and very popular among children, parents, educators and librarians.

* Social and emotional learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.
