The book begins with the story of a man who, 100 years ago, changed the climate of his land by planting an abundance of trees. The main character decides to escape from the long-forgotten book, in order to take his message to the world. The children encounter him in the woods.
A story within a story comes to life. A real life experience staged for elementary school children, who encounter fairy tale characters, in the flesh, one for each emotion, in the magic of surprise.
This is a true fairy tale which aims to increase awareness of our own emotions, with the help of those elicited by nature and its conservation.
It is the narrative of an educational project, part of the children's section of the Woods of Emotions Society of Toscolano Maderno (Italy), co-ordinated by Dr. Giuliano Guerra, psychotherapist, psychiatrist, author and scholar of neurosciences.
It is the dream of those who believe that reading good books to children creates magical moments. It is a story written for children who ask adults, "Will you read me a story? Will you share the emotions with me?"
The translation of this book was done by Dr. Olga Filippa Nel, PhD, Clinical & School Psychologist, Psychotherapist and Mindful Lifestyle Coach,
"Translating Children Trees Emotions for my friend and author, Marina Alberta Davo, was an inspiring journey into the world of fantasy. I feel privileged to have been part of this project and hope that my small contribution will help to share this vital message with children in anglophone countries.
I believe in a mindful lifestyle, one based on love, kindness and respect for oneself, for fellow human beings, for all living creatures and for our precious earth, as this has significant benefits on mental health, resilience and psychological wellbeing. Children Trees Emotions teaches children the important skills of emotional awareness and regulation in a whimsical, magical way that is truly heart-warming. A much needed and timeless message for young and old alike!"
