Bounce Back: Storybook
A storybook featuring Alex about persistence and resilience in the face of new challenges.
Share this story about Alex, a Sesame Street friend. When Alex’s father was incarcerated, Alex and his family faced big challenges, and he coped with big feelings such as fear and anger. But they’ve moved through those hard times, learned coping strategies, and are stronger for it.
Whether the problems young children face are big or small, it helps to build their resilience—the ability to move through challenges and bounce back from setbacks. Persistence is an important piece of resilience, and, like all people, Alex needs to find a way to tolerate frustration and practice patience with himself.
After reading, do the activity together. Invite children to celebrate all the amazing skills they’ve learned so far—and look forward to learning new ones!
