The Mother Company announces newest book in series designed to help children recognize, express and move through their feelings: Sally Simon Simmons’ Super Frustrating Day.
With fun rhymes and delightful images, this book will captivate young children as it provides them with tools to move through the big feeling of frustration.
The Mother Company, a company devoted to "helping parents raise good people," is pleased to announce their third book in the series. Sally Simon Simmons’ Super Frustrating Day follows little, red-haired whippersnapper Sally, who is hilariously tasked with building a mile-high, super tall sandwich in class. She sets off with gusto but when her efforts don't achieve the results she'd hoped for, she gets frustrated and wants to give up. With the help of her teacher, Sally learns that patience and practice ultimately help her triumph. Right alongside Sally, children will learn to breathe, take it slow, and try their best in this exuberant exploration of frustration, one of the greatest emotional challenges of early childhood (and beyond!).
The Mother Company's line of children's products and parenting advice site center around emotional literacy and social confidence. The company's line of books and shows (on DVD and download) were created to provide a beautiful, gentle, fun, and much-needed alternative to current programming and products for young children. “We created Sally Simon Simmons' book to provide children and their parents with the tools they need in life to cope with big emotions such as frustration,” said The Mother Company President, Samantha Kurtzman-Counter. Adds in CEO & Founder, Abbie Schiller, “What better way to help a child grow towards becoming a good person than by helping them cope with frustration. We believe this is fundamental to a child’s development.”
The Mother Company’s first live-action hosted 45-minute program, “Ruby’s Studio: The Feelings Show,” launched to rave critical reviews. The books and show raise your spirit and fill readers with warmth – in a style that is classy, gentle and far from over-the-top. Ruby’s Studio books, DVDs, downloads, music and now apps, are a great way to begin an important discussion with children about their feelings.
