EQ Explorers: Little Adventures for a Big, Happy Life | Awareness Tour

Awareness Tour sponsored by EQ Explorers
The Children’s Book Review | July 6, 2020

Studies show that emotional intelligence (EQ) is a key component to living a happy, successful life. And—unlike IQ—EQ can be learned.

Each book in the EQ Explorers series is designed to educate and inspire children through beautifully illustrated, creative-yet-relatable tales. With each story, the author shares a simple and powerful principle of happiness and emotional wellness—one adventure at a time.

To learn more, join us on this virtual EQ Explorers book tour. Get to know the entire EQ Explorer’s Series—including how 100% of profits are donated to help underserved kids around the world!

Be sure to enter the giveaway below for a chance to win a set of the books autographed by author Kim Linette, along with an adorable reading fort to celebrate your young reader!

Jojo Giraffe’s Big Laugh: Don’t Take Things Personally!

Written by Kim Linette

Illustrated by James Loram

Publisher’s Synopsis: Jojo Giraffe’s Big Laugh, the third book in the EQ Explorers series, takes children on a journey through the African Savannah, learning what it means to be wonderfully unique along the way—just like the spots on each and every giraffe.

The story centers around the powerful EQ principle: Don’t Take Things Personally. It’s a lesson of emotional intelligence that is essential for any child—including Kali, who learns through a series of fun adventures with Jojo Giraffe.

Compare Bear’s Double Dare: Be Yourself – Don’t Compare!

Written by Kim Linette

Illustrated by James Loram

Publisher’s Synopsis: The last thing Danny expects to come across during his hike in the forest is a very insecure bear. And yet, Compare Bear is precisely that—a bear who struggles to see his own strengths, and instead constantly compares himself to other animals, with astonishing results.

In Compare Bear’s Double Dare, one of the first books in the EQ Explorers series, Danny helps his unique new friend take to heart the powerful EQ principle: Be Yourself. Don’t Compare. It’s a lesson of emotional intelligence that is essential for any young reader.

Wally Whale’s Mighty Tail: Happiness is a Choice!

Written by Kim Linette

Illustrated by James Loram

Publisher’s Synopsis: The secret to happiness? It’s written on a whale’s tail. At least that’s what Koa hears, and so he sets out in search of Wally Whale and the valuable knowledge that he hopes Wally will share.

Wally Whale’s Mighty Tail, one of the first books in the EQ Explorers series, teaches the powerful EQ principle: Happiness is a Choice. It’s a lesson of emotional intelligence that is essential for any child—including Koa, who learns as he journeys through the Pacific with Wally Whale.
