2023 Children's Book Festival Prerecorded Sessions
Library and Information Science
In this session, we'll talk about the RULER theory of social emotional learning (Baily, Hoffman, & Simmons 2109) and share a project in-progress, a webliography called “We’re all orchids now: A bibliography of children’s picture books about dealing with anxiety,” which is supported by a Carnegie-Whitney Grant from the American Library Association. Using example books and reviews from this project, we'll explore the RULER framework, how it can be applied to picture books, and how these books can be used to support children and families coping with anxiety, overstimulation, and other emotional challenges.
