Riley the Brave is a little bear with big feelings. He really wants to have fun at the fair, but sometimes he struggles just making it to school, especially on the STINKY, BUMPY, NOISY bus!
It is hard for Riley to focus and have fun when he is feeling so many confusing sensations! He has porcupine moments and grumps at his friends, or turtle moments when he just wants to be alone. He even had a tiger moment, roaring at his teacher. With all these big feelings, how can he ever go to the fair?
Riley the Brave's Sensational Senses teaches children about their senses through a playful story with real-life strategies for emotion regulation. It also features an educational afterword for grown-ups that explains our eight senses and includes tips for getting the most out of the book.

In this new addition to the Riley the Brave series, Sinarski continues to help kids listen to and understand their bodies. By normalizing the outbursts and behaviours that often stem from unmet sensory needs, Riley makes it okay to ask grown-ups for help. He encourages kids to be open to trying new things, including therapy. This book helped my daughter make sense of the many BIG sensations she often feels - both inside and out. It gave our family a framework to create a plan to anticipate her sensory needs, with specific ways to help her feel safe and comfortable wherever she goes. Melissa “HR Mom” Griffin
