Social and Emotional Learning made Easy with Smartview Stories products

New experiences are both exciting and scary. We want our children to develop skills to navigate whatever comes their way...

Join us as we explore how to help ourselves and those around us embrace challenges.

Awkward Moments Bloom, Book 1 features the Poplar Family. Eight-year-old Wendy is struggling at her new school. When we are in an awkward moment, it is often difficult to imagine something positive rising from the experience. Wendy shows us how she has learned to use drawing to help her process her anxiety. Her family supports her by slowing down and creating space to listen. They are not helping her solve anything. They help her trust her own process. Our Inner Companions work together from within Wendy. Lo-and-behold, awkward moments do bloom!
