Welcome to What to Read Wednesday, a series where we suggest different reading material about mental health and wellness. Stay tuned every Wednesday for new recommendations!
This week, we’re taking a look at “We Listen to Our Bodies” by Lydia Bowers. According to Amazon, “Body awareness is a key foundation of consent. ‘We Listen to Our Bodies’ gives children a vocabulary to understand and communicate their feelings, develop personal boundaries, and build their social and emotional skills. Through body awareness and recognizing how emotions physically manifest, young children can listen to their bodies for clues about how they’re feeling. Their bodies might feel shaky when worried or like one big sigh when calm and relaxed. By recognizing that physical sensations are trying to communicate something, children can understand when they feel unsafe, calm, or in need of healthy touch.
‘We Listen to Our Bodies’ follows Deja and her preschool classmates as they learn to build emotional self-awareness by listening to the physical cues of their bodies. Using the book as a read-aloud, educators and families can model the language Deja’s teachers use to support children as they learn body awareness.”
