This weekend I had the pleasure of joining The Mother Company founders, Abbie Schiller and Samantha Kurtzman-Counter, in New York where we got to talk to moms, dads, bloggers, friends, and fans- both young and old- about our kids and the challenges that we face in getting our kids to be in touch with their feelings and express them. One thing that we heard over and over again was the gratitude for the slower pace of the DVD (Ruby’s Studio: The Feelings Show) and the beautiful styling of The Mother Company books (A Little Book About Feelings and My Feelings). Abbie and Sam put so much thought into every little detail and it shows!

Our newest endeavor blends high tech with their desire to foster emotional literacy even on the go through the brand new A Little Book About Feelings eBook app for iPhone and iPad. The talented team at PicPocket Books, who is so skilled at transforming books into apps, did a phenomenal job on A Little Book About Feelings.

The app is as gorgeous as the hardcover book and continues to teach about feelings while also developing reading skills in a fun, interactive way. Kids can read along with the text as it is highlighted and the illustrations are just as stunning on the app as in the book. Take a look!
I love The Mother Company and truly believe in Abbie and Sam’s mission of fostering social and emotional literacy in our children. Yes, I work for them but this post was written outside my scope of work and their message and products are something I’d share even if I didn’t because being able to express yourself and your feelings is a skill that is necessary for kids and adults.
