Come along on a journey through the jungle to the Jurassic Age, and onto the big city to learn that you're bigger than you know. This book is for young children who might be feeling small in a big, big world.
The book's concept comes from a public speaking technique that professionals use before speaking to a crowd. When you're feeling intimidated, instead imagine yourself as something bigger to feel empowered so that you can handle anything. Whether it's dealing with bullying, anxiety or family problems, children often need this type of empowerment and encouragement to manage in a big and tough world.
In addition, because of the simple storyline and repetition, young children can easily 'read' the book and recognize simple words, which helps them develop necessary pre-reading skills. Big Kid helps young children with social-emotional growth and contributes to positive mental health. Read the book whenever your child is feeling helpless and needs to be empowered.
