Books as tools to promote social and emotional competencies

Through the ProW project, Municipality of Lousada offered two books to each of the participating preschool. These books aim to work as useful resources for teachers to promote their children’s social and emotional development, to manage children’s challenging behaviors, and to teach positive behaviors.

These two books can be interesting and useful both for teachers and families:

“The Lion Inside”, by Rachel Bright and Jim Field, is a story about confidence, self-esteem, and a shy little mouse who sets out on a journey to find his roar!

“Thank You, the Story of a Neighborhood”, by Rocio Bonilla, is a story about how friendship, diversity, understanding, solidarity, curiosity, and empathy lead a community to prosper!

We hope teachers have great story times with their children!
