We all face bumps in the road. Some bumps are bigger than others. Some bumps we overcome quickly and others take longer for us to heal from. Taylor’s world is about to come crashing down and he really just needs someone to listen…
Taylor is thrilled when he has built a masterpiece out of his building blocks. But then a flock of birds come along and everything comes crashing down. Filled with sadness and tears, Taylor sits alone next to the building blocks. One by one various animals come along with ideas to help cheer Taylor up. But Taylor doesn’t feel like following any of their advice, he doesn’t want to talk about it, he doesn’t want to rebuild the tower, and he absolutely does not want to laugh about it. And then rabbit came along and did something that none of the other animals had done. The rabbit listened…
This is a wonderful picture book for developing emotional intelligence featuring limited text and charming illustrations. There are messages on empathy, kindness and the importance of understanding the needs of others. It provides lots of opportunities for exploring emotions, how we manage our feelings and how we can provide help and support to others.
Great for helping children to understand that when people are struggling or feeling sad they often don’t need the advice of others. They just need someone to be there for them, someone to listen, someone just like Rabbit.
