I love the Whatif Monster's strategy of imagining way outside the box to cope with anxiety. I'm gonna start using this myself!
What if....we could work to change the world through being brave enough to spread kindness daily? We ordered Books 1-6 of The Whatif Monster Chapter Books Series. My 5 year old LOVES them. We have read Gabby and the Mean Girl 5 times in a few days. I love how these books talk about real-life things like mean kids at school, but then the WhatIf Monster helps us dig deeper to find out why they are mean. Through showing kindness to Gabby it is then that Jonathon James, Sam & Sebastion find out why she is mean. She lost her mom and is foster care. She is mean so that she won't have to make friends and say goodbye to them later. I love how Michelle's books give a glimpse into real lives of people. It allows us as parents to read and expose our kids to the different type of people and families that the world has. The whole world needs more kindness and her books help show kids how to spread it! Don't mind my dog who photo bombed the photo last night. She loves storytime too, and getting her picture taken.
