Wisdom House Books Launches New Picture Book, Ellie and Her Emotional Dragons by Joseph Goodrich
US Marine pilot Goodrich becomes children's author, penning book about overcoming difficult emotions.
When Ellie hears scary noises, green dragon Naz encourages her to stand up to her fears. When Ellie's father leaves for work, blue dragon Nali helps distract her from her sadness. When a potential new friend accidentally rips Ellie's picture, red dragon Tully leads Ellie in taking deep breaths to calm her anger. Finally, yellow dragon Hani does a happy dance with Ellie when all is well at the end of the day.
Goodrich, a father and trained educator as well as a New York-based US Marine, hopes that Ellie and Her Emotional Dragons will serve as a resource for kids, parents, and teachers, demonstrating emotional intelligence and teaching empathy through a cheerful story and cute anthropomorphic characters. Traci Van Wagoner's colorful, rich illustrations will attract young readers, who are sure to love the dragons and feel comforted by tender images of Ellie smiling brightly and hugging her elephant parents.
With Ellie and Her Emotional Dragons, Goodrich has created a valuable tool that is both fun to read and full of subtle psychological insight that will teach young readers to work through their emotions.
