Wings for Kids Releases New Book: I Soar with Wings

Social emotional learning (SEL) is an essential aspect of a child’s development. It plays a critical role to shape their future. SEL is the process through which children develop the skills they need to understand and manage their emotions, build healthy relationships, and make responsible decisions.

Today, we are thrilled to announce the release of a new children’s book that focuses on SEL and aims to help children develop these important life skills. This book is designed to be fun and engaging, in addition to educating children about the importance of SEL and how to practice it in their daily lives. 

Read the book as a group, individually, or with families and mentors


About The Book

The book is titled, I Soar with Wings and features Words to Live By—a seven-stanza poem that uses kid-friendly language to teach the five core competencies of SEL. With this book, we’ve made Words to Live By more accessible than ever, helping children learn the fundamentals of SEL one page at a time. We want it to be a book everyone will enjoy reading again and again.

The book is illustrated with bright and colorful images—bringing the story to life and capturing the attention of young readers. The language used is simple and easy to understand, making it accessible for children of all ages.

Colorful characters and simple rhymes make this book perfect for storytime!


Using the Book as a Tool to Teach SEL

Additionally, the book includes a section on SEL activities that parents and teachers can use to reinforce the lessons learned in the book. These activities are designed to be interactive and engaging, helping children to internalize the concepts they have learned and apply them in their daily lives.

We are confident that this book will be a valuable resource for parents, teachers, and caregivers who are looking to foster social-emotional development in children. It is a great way to start a conversation about SEL and provide children with the tools they need to navigate the ups and downs of life with resilience and grace.

SEL is an essential aspect of a child’s development and this new children’s book is an excellent way to introduce it to young readers. We hope that this book will inspire children to embrace their emotions, build strong relationships, and become confident, well-rounded individuals. Add a copy to your bookshelf and watch your kids learn, grow, and SOAR!
