In her time teaching, Stefanie has discovered the importance of social emotional learning and believes that it is the foundation for creating positive learning environments as well as future academic and life success. That is where her idea for this book was born.

With its simple illustrations and rhyme scheme, Grow a Heart engages young children and teaches them about the power their words and actions have on the feelings (and hearts) of others. Using the metaphor of a growing heart and hurting a heart to illustrate feelings, this book provides clear imagery and simple text for children, families, and caregivers.
