Emotion clouds enrich the experience of reading together

One of the unique features of Roundies books is the emotion cloud concept. The clouds appear throughout the book, prompting children to think about their emotions with questions inspired by the story but that also draw on a child’s everyday life and emotional experiences. This encourages active rather than passive entertainment and supports studies showing interactive learning is the most effective way.

The emotion cloud is a helpful tool for children who are learning how to manage their own emotions and relationships, and gives the parents and children an opportunity for conversation that will help them to explore emotional development together.

So far series of six books published in Finland by Kustannus Mäkelä (in Finnish)
