As an elementary counselor and teacher I am passionate about incorporating book resources into my curriculum. I have written a small series of books to be used primarily (but not exclusively) in a small group or individual counseling setting. The SpunkyDoodles are a group of kids that learn valuable lessons in each book. Each book only includes words so that your student(s) have the opportunity to become the illustrator. Each book includes a "Processing Page" for the teacher or counselor. The processing page includes discussion questions and suggested activities to accompany the book. In "Family," the SpunkyDoodles each share about their unique, nuclear family unit. This is a great way to build safety and trust in group settings because the SpunkyDoodles affirm that each family is special AND different--and that's okay!
