Do you ever feel sad, lonely, or worried? What about angry, or scared? These feelings can be hard to fell, can’t they? It would be much easier to just feel happy all the time! But everyone feels these ways sometimes, and it’s nothing to be scared or worried about. As long as you know helpful ways to handle your feelings, everything will be OK! And that is what Piggie Bear is for! Piggie Bear shows children everywhere just how amazing they are, each and everyone. And Piggie Bear also shows children different techniques they can use to work through emotions that are hard to feel and understand. The Power of Piggie Bear is an important emotional tool, created for young children to learn how to identify, process, and manage their own feelings in a healthy way.
