Alfie loves playing with friends in the forest. But sometimes Alfie plays too rough or too fast and has a hard time focusing.
Made in consultation with child psychologists and teachers, Slow Down, Alfie! illustrates how Alfie deals with an overactive mind and body, using a variety of tactics including practicing mindfulness. Read this book with an overactive child in your life to help give them the social-emotional learning tools they need, together with Alfie.
Alfie the stuffed animal has extra-long, weighted arms—perfect for giving hugs. Tucked inside their back pocket is a small, soft blanket so when Alfie and their child friend can't be together, they can always feel Alfie's comfort.
Alfie helps children understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, develop a growth mindset, while developing supportive relationships with one another.
