"This is a lovely jungle story about a monkey Yuri who learns not to capture small animals and to send them back to where they belong. A great lesson for young children!
The author's connection and love of the Amazon jungle are clearly reflected in the writing.
The storyline is simple and interesting to catch young children's attention. The illustrations are vibrant and lively too. Strongly recommended!"
Yuri and the Treasure Box by Emma Ugarelli Five Stars
This story follows a curious monkey Yuri, who finds a strange box while walking along the Amazon River. He picks it up but doesn't know what to do with it. He tried to wear it as a hat and use it as a seat and drum, but then he realized it was a storage box. Yuri started searching for something special to put in his treasure box.
Read to know what Yuri picked up to put in his treasure box, and during his search, he learned that we all have to care for the emotions and sentiments of others, either big or small.
Illustrations are vibrant and colorful pages filled with adorable animal characters making this book an incredible learning journey for kids. This cute and sweet story teaches children to be kind and empathetic toward others.
Perfect for 2+
"And now...there are two." Lou and his Mane, my first book, is about a lion who one day woke up to realize that his worst fear had come true, and he did not have his Mane—a story about facing fears, resilience and friendship. You can learn more about this story on my website. www.eugarellibooks.com
A month ago, following the first anniversary of my book Lou and his Mane, I published Yuri and the Treasure Box. This book is about a curious monkey that one day found something strange and, after some consideration decided that it was a "treasure box" and started looking for treasures, but did he find them? A sweet story about respect, self-regulation, consideration, compassion and taking care of the environment.
You can buy them at the major retailers, but if you are in Canada, visit my website, www.emmasplace.ca.
WHO by emma ugarelli
Like many youngsters, Baby Lion gets into trouble because he acts without thinking about the consequences. He lacks self-regulation, and he cannot control himself.
Lou and his mane's story pinpoint the role of the little brother's action, something prevalent among siblings. He took something precious from his big brother without asking, and on many occasions, it could end in a big fight. Fortunately, Lou was relieved to see his mane again and noticed that his little brother regretted his actions. He took a deep breath, put on his mane and showed his little brother understanding. There are some ways for parents to minimize those situations, giving clear rules, teaching the children to manage conflict and giving each child their own time and space with you and alone.
You can get a copy of Lou and his Mane at Amazon or at emmasplace.ca for more information visit my author website eugarellibooks

new release by emma ugarelli
I am very excited to announce that my book "Yuri and the Treasure Box" has been released. The story is about Yuri, who is a pretty curious monkey! One day, while walking along the Amazon River, he bumps into something strange, something he has never seen before. He picks it up, wondering what it could be. Is it a hat? A seat? A drum? No . . . it's a treasure box! Or is it? While bringing awareness to the Amazon and its diverse wonders, Yuri and the Treasure Box is a delightful book about empathy, self-regulation, curiosity, respect, consideration, and compassion for others. Children will learn the value of kindness, caring for their environment, and respecting others, whether big or small. Yuri and the Treasure box is my second book following the first anniversary of Lou and his Mane, published last year. My book is available on my website, www.emmasplace.ca (for Canada), in two formats. Paperback and Hardcover. Worldwide at Amazon.com. Barnes and Noble. Also, the ebook format available on Kindle, Google, and Apple. For more information about the book and places to buy it, visit my website www.eugarellibooks.com

"This is a very cute, just delightful book of friendship and mutual help with bright illustrations. I bought it for my nephew Tommy as a gift and now he won't part with it. The main character in this book Lou has become his favourite character and Tommy keeps asking when the adventures of Lou and his friends will continue. I am glad that this wise and kind fairy tale will teach a lot of good things to children, and adults too."
"I highly recommend this book to children and parents who care about what their children will grow up to be."

"What a great story! I loved it from the bright and beautiful cover and illustrations through to the fun, well-written and interactive story it is. The character of Lou is Lovable too. The animal friends show kindness and support towards him but when he discovers what happens to his mane, his reaction is a beautiful example to share with all children . A great book to teach kindness and compassion with. Highly recommended for children aged 3 to 7. Such a lovely book!".

It is wonderful to tell the story interactively with my book characters on a felt board. Using felt characters is an interactive way to engage the children in recreating and retelling the story. Thank you for the excellent job @crochetfunnyvan,

Ways to prevent bullying among young children: - Be a good role model, -Encourage empathy - talk about the safe space rule and what that means: My body is safe, My feelings are safe, and my work is safe.- Show children pictures that show different behaviours involving two or more children, and discuss with them.- Give the children the words to express their feelings -work with them in conflict
