Now more than ever, adults must help children develop the skills necessary to navigate successfully through life. By focusing on building social and emotional strength, adults increase children's resilience and prepare them to handle the challenges in life. The strategies and activities in Socially Strong, Emotionally Secure provide teachers with the tools they need to help children become socially and emotionally healthy for life. Organized into five chapters, the activities support and build resilience in children ages three to eight.

I enjoyed this book because it is a topic I face every day of school. The activities are so wonderful, my students enjoyed and actually ask to do them during the day. - Teacher I set up a time every day for the activities to help my students develop their skills. Creating such skills made my heart soar. Thanks to your great resource! - Teacher We used the activities to build community in our classroom. The climate of our classroom improved after using these lessons. - Teacher
