Reviewed in the United States ?? on July 11, 2023 Lou and his Mane is a cute story for young children. Lou wakes up to find his mane is gone! He is brave and asks others to help him. Sometimes asking for help can be hard for kids, so this is great that it shows even though Lou is embarrassed, he is willing to still ask for help. His friends also really show good friendship by helping him search. Once Lou finds his mane, he also shows grace to another. The illustrations are also so great! Pre-school aged kids will love this book.
5.0 out of 5 stars A must-read story about the importance and power of friendship! Reviewed in the United States ?? on July 3, 2023 “Lou and his Mane” is the sweet and delightful story about the power of friendship. Lou runs into a predicament and is thrown into a bit of a panic until his incredibly loyal friends calm his fears. It is quite moving to see a lion, the king of the jungle, relying on the unwavering support of a giraffe, snake, monkey and crocodile to see him through his trouble. “Lou and his Mane” reminds readers young and old of the importance of trusted friends. Highly recommended!
Children's Book by emma ugarelli
Animals in Children’s books.
One of the common features of children's literature is the use of animals as characters. Animals can serve as a way for children to identify with the story while creating a distance from human reality. This allows children to explore the messages and themes of the story in a more objective way. Children can detach themselves from their biases and prejudices because they do not see themselves as lions, llamas, penguins, monkeys or talking objects. Still, they can recognize the actions and the consequences in the story. It is easier to understand emotions and social interactions when we focus on the behaviour more than the appearance or identity of the character.
Using animals as characters, we do not have a problem of inclusion or diversity. The message, the story is directed to all children without exception.
Children represented in Children's books are powerful tools for learning and development, especially for empowering children who feel represented. But these books need to be sensitive, respectful of diversity and inclusive. When children's books portray children in ways that reflect the author's bias or stereotypes, they may harm the children who read them or are represented by them. Therefore, when we write or choose children's books, we must be careful and critical of how they are represented and make sure that the book is focused on the message and the behaviour, not the appearance of the children's characters unless it is inclusive. We can help children develop positive and healthy identities and values, but we also, if not careful, perpetuate stereotypes.

Hi there! I'm so happy to share with you Kenny's story, my third book for kids. It's about a smart and curious penguin who dreams of becoming the first penguin astronaut. He wants to see the stars up close and look at the Earth from far away. This story is inspired by a great Canadian friend, Kenneth D., who has a passion for penguins. It has a hidden love message for his wife Louise . Both Louise and Ken were the first Canadian family who welcomed us when we moved to Vancouver.

This is a sweet and touching story for kids going through a challenging time, a time of losing a family member. The story is about Lydia, who is extremely sad and lonely after her dad passes away. Her mom hugged her and told her she was not alone because the Good Shephard was always watching over her—such lovely thought of comfort that everybody, special children, need in tough times. A lovely story.
kids feel emotion differently by emma ugarelli
If you witness a temper tantrum, you know this could be triggered by the slightest thing. Researches tell us that young children feel emotions in a more full-body way than adults do.
Kids do not understand that emotions are temporary. It is hard for them to understand that emotions can come and go, and it also is hard for them to articulate how they feel about them.
At preschool age, kids start to manage their emotions better. They can practice in an environment with other kids and different adults; they start learning to articulate their feelings and express them better with words. They are getting better at self-regulation especially older preschoolers. To help them gain control of their emotions, we need to guide them positively.#education #learning #kids #child #children
Why Yuri? by emma ugarelli
Yuri is the main character in two of my children's books located in the Amazon rainforest. There was some speculation about this character's name and why the name Yuri when it's known as of Russian name and a Japanese name. It is also a Quechua Aymara name used in the Amazon region. In the book you can find plenty of animals originally from the region, like Jaguars, Toucans, and more.
In this story Yuri and the Treasure Box Yuri will bring awareness to the Amazon and its diverse wonders, children will learn the value of kindness, caring for their environment and respecting others, whether big or small.
You can find the book at EMMA'S PLACE (emmasplace.ca), at Amazon marketplace and other major retailers.
