I AM IN THE MIDDLE

As readers will discover in Tamara Williams-Dobson’s fascinating and appealing story, parents and/or caregivers should be strategic about helping their children process their emotions and develop a positive self -view.  Tiana, a middle child, needed reassurance that she is special, unique, and precious in the sight of her parents.  Children should be made to feel unique, precious, and distinct, no matter their birth order.   Social emotional development includes the child’s experience, expression, and management of emotions.  Tiana’s mom helped Tiana to develop and process her emotions to acquire a more positive view of her self.  Tamara’s evocative language and   DG’s beautiful illustrations tells a story of understanding, reassurance, and empowerment.
