Tree is a gentle story of loss that helps children to learn how to say goodbye and process grief.
Tree is the much-loved centerpiece of the community. But one day Curly and Loppy notice that Tree’s leaves are starting to fall — at the wrong time of year — and Tree’s bark is flaking.
It’s Tree’s time to leave. Fortunately Curly is able to teach Loppy how to accept that Tree is leaving, say goodbye, and commemorate Tree’s life.
This new addition to the Lessons of a LAC (Little Anxious Creature)series will give your child a way to think about mood. Specifically, how the way they feel is influenced by how they are viewing things.
As always, early intervention is our aim. Educating children early about how thoughts affect feelings is taking great steps forward! For them to tune into their feelings and wonder what glasses they are wearing in order to feel those feelings develops important emotional skills. For example, self-awareness, self-reflection, self-enquiry and puts them in a position of choice: to change feelings, change the colour glasses they are wearing (i.e., the way they are viewing things/thinking).
One day, Dad invites Billy into his shed to build something, but Billy soon finds out that he is only allowed to watch. As Dad becomes engrossed in his project, Billy takes Dad’s off-cuts and other items from around the yard and starts to copy what his Dad is building. When they reveal their creations, Dad discovers that Billy has more talents than his dad had ever imagined! Up to Something explores the father–son relationship, and the satisfaction to be gained from making things ourselves.
