Snap Stories about Feelings are therapeutic stories and activities intended to help kids learn about and manage their feelings. Anger, sadness, and worry are among the feelings addressed in the stories. In “Winifred Worries about School”, Winifred the mouse learns how to manage her worry about going back to school with help from her brother, Wendall. Kids can listen to the story, see it illustrated, and then practice what they have learned by completing the activity book. No reading is required, although kids may enjoy reading along with the story. No clinical training is necessary to use the app. Kids can use the app themselves or with a clinician, parent, or other caregiver. Counselors or therapists who work with children will find the app a welcome addition to their practices. Teachers will find the app useful as well.

Ratings and Reviews
Winifred is every child.
Appreciate that this story addresses the worries of every child (actually adults have similar worries!) The lesson is to not ignore your worries, because they are real, but to speak back to them. This is a great tool for 1st graders to have and take with them into adulthood!
Also, I really like the adorable graphics and soothing voice!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
