With the need to support student's social and emotional well-being becoming more important than ever, it's essential that your library have a robust assortment of SEL books in its collection. Join publishing insiders from Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing, Albert Whitman & Co., and Story Monsters Press for a first look at their new SEL titles that are designed to help children develop social and emotional skills and identify with others.


Featured Titles:

In Every Life
In every life, there is love and loss, hope and joy, wonder and mystery. With glowing art and spare, powerful text, Caldecott Honor–winning creator Marla Frazee celebrates the moments, feelings, and experiences, both big and small, that make up a life.


Cate and the Garden Bandits
Cate and the Garden Bandits incorporates general science facts to drive home the importance of how our world will only survive by interdependence. It also introduces more challenging vocabulary words for enrichment and to accommodate the learning loss that occurred during the early days of the pandemic.
