Storytelling is a tool that helps children understand themselves and their world. When we provide children with words for the experience and the feelings they may have about the experience, we empower them to calm unsettled emotions.
The Twigtale Starting Preschool book allows the child to make sense of a new, and often challenging transition. I made a similar book for my own son when he started preschool. Twigtale makes it easy for parents to narrate & personalize their children’s stories to aid in a smooth transition.

What an innovative way to address common childhood transitions. I recommend these books to parents because the personalization of the story to their own child makes them so effective.
