Healthy Feelings & Relationships


Each hand-picked book in this section is paired with a FREE downloadable reading guide, designed to promote the social and emotional learning skills necessary for kids to manage their emotions and behavior.


These book-and-resource pairs were developed in partnership with CASEL (Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning) to help kids understand their feelings and better manage their resulting behavior. Each resource features activities inspired by the accompanying book. The resources for PreK - 3rd grade also feature a letter for families (available in English and Spanish) to help extend the learning into the home.



Social and emotional learning skills are vital for all students and are critically important for those who have experienced trauma. In partnership with the MSEA, First Book developed the Trauma Toolkit to help you identify signs of stress or trauma in your students and learn concrete, actionable steps you can take to support the learning and development of the kids you serve.



These resources are made possible thanks to a generous donation from Molina Healthcare and the Maryland State Education Association.
