Meet Jesse True
Learning how to deal with feelings is critical for proper social and emotional development. Reason and consequence evolve as children grow, and they need guidance, encouragement, and support to help navigate and develop their emotions.
Jesse True was created to help children learn that all feelings are OK. We often associate colors with feelings, such as “feeling blue” or “red with anger”. When Jesse feels something strongly he generates energy,
radiating a color that reflects his emotion. He glows different colors based on different feelings. Jesse’s “super power” is changing colors.
The message Jesse gives children is that emotions, whether good or bad, are both natural and healthy.
A color chart is provided at the end of each book. As you read about Jesse’s experiences, encourage your children to identify and discuss their feelings. See if they would feel the same as Jesse. Use Jesse’s stories to open a dialogue with your children, so they are empowered to say what they think or feel, in a safe place, and learn to enjoy the kaleidoscope of their feelings!
