Successful Education

Successful education requires more than teaching the 3 Rs. Educators must provide an environment where children are taught the social and emotional skills that will benefit them in their entire pursuit of education. Encouraging and teaching foundational social emotional learning (SEL) skills are especially critical for children in their early formative years.

An Excellent Method to Impart SEL Skills

One of the best methods to impart SEL skills is to provide children with action-filled storybooks that promote SEL skills, and that they enjoy reading or having them read. The greater the emotional enjoyment children receive from their education, the greater the effectiveness of their training. All award-winning Sommer-Time Story books weave in their inspiring stories positive character traits that encourage children to desire successful SEL skills. Children love Sommer-Time story books so much that librarians have reported they cannot keep the books on their shelves (See: Endorsements). The Sommer-Time resources of storybooks, read-alongs, and videos have won over 65 prestigious national awards (See: Awards) .
