Alpaca's board book was developed with the intention to promote anxiety and stress relief. Through Alpaca's story, children learn to articulate their feelings and share their worries with others.
This interactive routine promotes:
Alpacas are strong and have always shown that they can carry the weight, so you don’t have to alone... During times of stress or heightened anxiety, many children find comfort in articulating, naming and sharing their feelings and fears. Their Alpaca can be a confidant, a neutral furry friend who can help carry the weight of worries, both big and small, if even for a short while.
Alpaca is an old soul with a gentle presence and a calm demeanor. He lives with his grandparents, who are also very wise. All alpacas are mythical creatures who provide a service to other creatures in the land by holding their worries. Centered and kind, Alpaca immediately puts others at ease with his ability to remain grounded in the present. Alpaca lives with intention and discipline, but his zen-like qualities don’t make him a bore to be around. In fact, he has quite a sense of humor! Alpaca’s daily practice of gratitude helps him to understand that he has everything he could possibly need and then some.
