    The two children’s books in the The Zones of Regulation Storybook Set were created to provide an easy, kid friendly way to kick off and support lessons for children ages 5-11 years old, while using the The Zones of Regulation curriculum (book). The storybooks are meant to be used in conjunction with lessons from the curriculum book, The Zones of Regulation .

    The Road to Regulation: A Story about Understanding Feelings and Emotions
    The Road to Regulation, the first storybook, takes young readers on a school-day journey as Gabriel, Suhana, Julian, and Vivian learn about the Zones of Regulation throughout their day. Whether they are on the noisy bus, trying to focus in class, feeling left out in the cafeteria, or scoring a homerun in a kickball game, they experience a wide range of feelings in different sizes, intensities, and levels of energy. During a school assembly, they learn that all those high, low, and in-between feelings fit into four coloured Zones. The Zones of Regulation gives them an easy way to talk and think about their feelings in their bodies. When a fire alarm sends everyone reeling in different ways, the kids have a perfect opportunity to reflect on the ups and downs of their day and see how they were in different Zones at different times. Best of all, they realise that all Zones—and all feelings—are okay and learning to recognise and understand them are the first steps on The Road to Regulation.

    The Regulation Station: Exploring Tools to Help Manage Feelings and Emotions
    In The Regulation Station, the second storybook in this two-book series, Gabriel falls asleep and dreams that he’s on a fantastic adventure with his friends. After a wild bus ride, they discover a magical place, The Regulation Station, filled with activities, art, and movement. As the friends explore different experiences at the Regulation Station, they begin to notice how they feel afterward – more relaxed, focused, and calm. Back at school, Gabriel realises that the activities from his dream are actually called “tools” — and that tools have special powers that help us regulate our feelings and our bodies so we can meet the needs of our day. The class continues to learn about the steps on the Road to Regulation and Gabriel wonders, “Was it all a dream, after all?”

    The storybooks are sequential:
    • Storybook 1- The Road to Regulation: A Story about Understanding Feelings and Emotions
    • Storybook 2- The Regulation Station: Exploring Tools to Help Manage Feelings and Emotions

    Both Storybooks include these pages in the backmatter to assist with teaching:
    • Extend the Learning Section (with guided questions and curriculum references)
    • Vocabulary List
    • Dos and don’ts
    • Variations: Storybook 1 includes two Activity Sheets; Storybook 2 includes three sample Tool cards from the Tools to Try Cards for Kids product (these tools are mentioned in the story: Wall Pushes, Bird Breath, Walk It Out)
