    resources for children

    We fell in love with these thoughtful resources for children from the publishers at Sounds True, a publishing house we personally rely on for consistently thoughtful books from Donna Eden to Wim Hof to Pema Chodron.

    Each of the coloring pages, videos and other downloads below offer emotionally supportive tools for kids and parents on themes like loss, anger, change and resiliency. They are all free and made in connection with beautiful children’s books that are also available. Find the the tool that’s right for your family or try them all this weekend…
