About The Book
When Lavy’s anticipation of fun at the park with Mommy is thwarted by a rainy day, she discovers that a change in plans can be a gift—if she chooses to see it that way.
Lavy’s Rainy Day shows parents and children how a shift in perception can change our emotional state and create positive experiences. Life continuously gives people of all ages challenges that sometimes seem overwhelming. Emotional intelligence (EQ) is an essential skill for being able to handle the ups and downs of daily life and is instrumental in being healthy, happy, and successful. Lavy’s Rainy Day helps children develop emotional intelligence by allowing the reader to follow along as Lavy experiences her disappointments, discovers alternatives for a thwarted day, and learns the lesson that when things do not go the way we want, we can still find joy in the experience. Join Lavy as she navigates the world of emotions, relationships, and self understanding.
