Peppy Pals Launch Children’s E-Books in the U.S. to Meet Global Need for Emotional Intelligence
260,000 Copies Sold in Sweden Fuels U.S. Launch
STOCKHOLM, Sweden, (April 12, 2016)—Peppy Pals, the award-winning developer of apps and e-books that teach children about empathy, emotions and problem solving skills, has launched three educational and entertaining Peppy Pals e-books. The e-books are a combination of study material and fun adventure that inspire a dialogue about emotions between children and adults.
“In a world where bullying and cyber-bullying are all too common, society must take action against these hurtful interactions and create a more positive environment,” said Rosie Linder, CEO and Founder of Peppy Pals. “With the launch of the three Peppy Pals e-books, parents and teachers receive inspiration and guidelines to discuss important life topics such as friendship, collaboration and how to handle emotions. While discussing, readers are also entertained by the humor and playfulness of the e-books.”
The three e-books are Sammy Helps Out, Izzy’s Tempting Apple, and Reggy’s Bad Luck. All three e-books are available on Amazon for the price of $2.99 each. The e-books originally launched in Sweden in the Swedish language, and after the great success of over 260,000 copies sold, the e-books are now available in English to greater audiences.
The e-books showcase learning situations dealing with the differences and similarities between people, encouraging or helping others in need, and handling emotions like selfishness, guilt, anger, or those resulting from mistakes. At the end of each e-book, questions are provided to inspire dialogue about empathy and feelings between children and adults or teachers. Some questions include, “What does Reggy think when all the friends get angry, sad and disappointed?” “How does it feel to be angry or sad?” and “What do you think about when you are afraid of doing something?”.
