I’m Stretched by Julia Cook is about a girl who feels stressed trying to tackle all of the things on her plate (homework, school projects, soccer tryouts). This is a feeling that I know many children (and adults) can identify with. Her mom ends up giving her some suggestions to handle her stress so she’s feels less stretched.
This book is relatable to both kids and adults. We all feel extremely stretched at some point in our lives and the strategies shared are great strategies to use to help handle some of that stress.
I shared this book with my class during Morning Meeting and we had a great discussion. We talked through some of the different strategies to help manage stress and even practiced a few!
