    Educational Books and Toys for Character Development

    Kids were playing in the playground running, jumping, tossing a ball. Jack was playing harder than the others, snatching the ball and pushing kids around. Some cried.

    What are the hidden roots of Jack's aggressive behavior? How can we reach them? .AND SHOULD ONLY KIDS LIKE JACK BE REACHED OUT TO? No! All children ache at times. Children encounter hardships at different points in their lives. Some of these difficulties may be transient, such as moving to a new town, while some last a long time, or even remain permanent such as school based challenges or familial changes (divorce, loss of loved ones, abuse). We must always remember the inner factors: some children are simply more sensitive than others and blink harder with each blow.

    Untreated emotions may erupt in the form of acts of violence, anxiety, learning or concentration difficulties, hyperactivity, obsession, fear, sleeping problems, eating disorders or a constant state of misery. WHY CAN'T WE JUST TALK ABOUT IT? Because talking does not change the child's perceptions of himself as these perceptions are not necessarily based on fact and reality. Children live in a world of metaphors and imagery, of fantasy, magic and dreams.

    In order to help, the adult must approach children using their language. One good way are educational books and stories. BIBLIOTHERAPY ? WHAT IS IT? Literally, biblio-therapy is mental aid through literature to increase understanding, development and personality growth. In this process, the therapist (teacher, psychologist, social worker, counselor or parent) uses an educational book with a story relevant to the child's situation and needs, as a treatment aid. The child identifies with the hero and is able to unload his conflicts, aggression and repressed emotions on the characters without feeling guilt or shame. All while learning new coping skills.

    "The Two Tuba Switch" incorporates the principals of bibliotherapy with two additional features ? an informed bookmark for guided reading and activity suggestions; and a set of character toys. WHY ALSO A TOY? Through play children learn new things, develop critical thinking skills, engage in problem solving, and practice roles and behaviors. All while having fun! Children over 3 and under age 10 can best communicate their emotions through papers and crayons for writing or drawing a scene based on the story. Educational books with toys, such as miniatures, dolls and objects, and activities such as role-playing, games, music, discussion and creative problem-solving, can be used to increase assimilation.
