Follow the five short stories of Ana (Dandelion) as she learns to MIND HER MANNERS in HYGIENE, COURTESY, TABLE MANNERS, RESPECT, & PATIENCE. Written to help children understand the basic elements of etiquette.
Once children have learned their manners, let them use INCENTIVIZED PRATICE CHARTS to help them better develop and keep their good habits.
Ana is an 8-year-old girl who struggles sometimes with telling the truth and her self-esteem. One day during a difficult family moment, Ana’s adoptive mother shares with her the attributes and life-cycle of a dandelion; explaining that though the dandelion looks like a flower, some consider it a weed, not understanding its value - the way that Ana sometimes feels.
This story is beautifully written with colorful illustrations to match. Book includes VOCABULARY, CHECK-ON-LEARNING, JOURNAL PROMPTS, AND AUTHOR EXTRAS.
GREAT FOR CHILDREN, PARENTS, COUNSELORS, AND THERAPISTS!

This 90+ page full length (11in x 8.5in) spiraled journal is the supplemental companion to the book, HEEEYY DANDELION! Throughout the pages are places to write down (JOURNAL) anything young users may have on their mind, as well as places to help them stay organized. Sometimes users will be asked to remember what happened during their day and how it made them feel by completing CHECK-INS.
The practice of journaling can help users feel better, as well as think better. Journaling can also help users have better thoughts towards other people, things that have happened to them, and towards themselves. To help users think positive thoughts about themselves, they'll also see AFFIRMATIONS. These are reminders to help young users remember that they are special. Finally, to help them relax a bit, there are also PUZZLES sprinkled throughout.
