“The “Heal with Play” Story Hour gives children a chance to process complicated emotions in a fun and engaging way. Sarah’s gentle, open style makes it easy for kids to draw parallels between the book and their own lives. We loved having her join us for our weekly “Big Kid” story time!”

HOW HWP STORY HOUR WORKS
READ A BOOK
We’ll explore social-emotional themes such as resilience, belonging, empathy & more.
Next, we’ll work on an activity that dives deeper into the themes we read about together.
TIPS + CURIOUS
Caregivers will be provided with some helpful hints and curious statements to help them cultivate more meaningful conversations.
“Reading has always been one of the fastest ways to give my mind comfort, joy, and respite. I’m forever grateful to come from a family that packs suitcases full of books for vacation and has stacks and stacks of stories on every bedside table. As a Clinical Social Worker, Registered Play Therapist-Supervisor and Parent – reading has taken on even more meaning than I ever imagined! “
-Sarah Scott Dooling, Owner and Founder of Heal with Play
