Social and Emotional Learning made Easy with Smartview Stories products

Movement is an important aspect of how we can support ourselves in living healthy brain lives.

Join us as we explore typical body-mind dynamics that can ruin or enhance human experience.

Walking Together, Book 2 features the Poplar Family. All three stories involve situations where Stryder or Wendy find someone to walk with them through new experiences. For the part of our brain that is uncomfortable with not-knowing, this sense of walking together brings relief and ease. In Quiet Like a Deer, Stryder finds himself awake at night with a strong inner knowing he’d like to explore. Wendy joins him. In New Moon Walking, Wendy convinces Mama that their feet can grow eyes and dance in the dark if they join Grammy and Grampy for their monthly New Moon Walk. Frustration builds up in Stryder as he plays games online with his friends in The Blame Game. Papa shows us how he gives Stryder space, acceptance and encouragement that he will find his own way, rather than a sense something is wrong. And, of course, they walk as they talk. 

We will get to meet the Oak Family and some of the Maple Family in the New Moon Walk story. This story features a trail that goes along the Blue Ridge Parkway from the front parking lot of Smart View Recreation Area to Smart View Lookout.
