Book Review - The Power of Piggie Bear by Mara James + Giveaway

 

The cute illustrated book helps little readers understand and process their feelings in a fun and loving way. Piggie Bear helps little ones recognize their feelings and how to use words to express themselves. The book includes self-calming exercises that they can utilize. I thought the book was a cute and fun read along with being an important resource for little ones. The book will help enable young children to put their feelings into words and help them process their feelings.

**Disclosure - I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest opinion.**
