At some point in our lives, all of us have hard-to-feel feelings. We get mad, sad, or scared, and we have no idea what to do about it!

When one little girl's world goes topsy turvy, her feelings are way too big and confusing. She has no idea what to do! And the adults in her home seem too busy to help, or feel too far away to talk to. With the help of an animal friend, she discovers the smart in her heart, and learns how to understand and cope with her emotions.

Smart In My Heart sheds light on children who don't have the language to express how they feel. It is a tool for educators, therapists, and even parents to help children who are feeling lonely or emotionally unwell. The text, pictures, and psycho-educational questions teach children self-soothing strategies and how to access their inner strengths.


“This is a wonderful book that’s full of heart. For kids who are struggling, it's incredibly important that they feel validated and like they're not alone. That’s exactly what this book offers.”

-Michelle Leybman, PhD, C. Psych

"Kristin Greco's book teaches strategies to help children deal with issues arising from the pandemic, such as the yoyo education system which goes back and forth from in school learning to online learning...a situation that is tough for parents, educators and most importantly children!" - Domenica Ferri-Violante M.Ed,B.A, B.Ed. Special Ed Specialist
