Content Summary

Welcome to the world of Storypod's Emotional Learning Monsters, presenting our newest monster friend - Sad Monster!

Developed under the guidance of a Social Thinking® Teacher and Certified Speech Language Pathologist, our series delivers a captivating blend of stories, music, and activities that center on various emotions. This Craftie focuses on the emotion of sadness, aiming to help kids grapple with this big feeling.

Embark on everyday adventures with Sad Monster as they navigate the world. When Sad Monster starts to feel sorrow, especially missing their Grown-Up Monster when they go to work or school, insightful lessons, calming songs, and numerous strategies come to the rescue, aiding them in understanding and handling their feelings of sadness. Sad Monster assists kids in processing the feeling of loss, like when they misplace their teddy bear, and the array of emotions it incites.
