Clara is a licensed school counselor who noticed that children often struggle to understand the causes and effects of their emotions. To address this problem, she created a series of bibliotherapy books that feature Shantika, a third-grader who faces negative self-perception due to her family crisis. Shantika's behavior becomes problematic as she disrespects adults and frequently runs out of her classroom, resulting in frequent visits to the principal's office. However, Shantika meets a Wisdom Tree that helps her transform her perspective on herself and her family, leading to positive changes. These books provide a helpful resource for children in similar situations by offering them a relatable character and a guide towards positive change.
"There is no doubt that every child has a superhero within them. Unfortunately, when children are exposed to stressors such as domestic violence, neglect, substance abuse, and family members with mental illness, their ability to reach their highest learning, social, and emotional potential decreases. These long-term stressors are known as Adverse Childhood Experiences or ACEs. To help children see themselves and their circumstances in a less threatening way, it is important for them to have access to literature that addresses these issues. Shantika The Superhero is one such book that not only encourages children but also helps parents understand the struggles their children might be facing."
