Max’s Fuzzy Feelers is a book centered around social emotional learning (SEL) and developing emotional intelligence and mindfulness techniques for young children. The main character Max has antennas or “feelers” that change their outward appearance based on Max’s internal emotional state. The universal message is to help normalize experiencing extreme emotions and help children to work with their feelings rather than hide them or run from them.
