Skeletina and the In-Between World is a spooktacular read as we lead up to Halloween! Inspired by the Mexican culture, this spooky story combines kooky characters with an important social emotional learning theme on empathy, bravery, and the enduring power of love.
Meet Skeletina, a fun-loving, fearless little girl who lives in the in-between world with her friends, who include monsters, creatures, ghosts, and more. The upside-down, inside-out, in-between world is where the living go when they are fast asleep and where the dead hang out when they have unfinished business. Visitors to the in-between world are children who come to confront their fears or to see a loved one who has recently left the world of the living. Either way, Skeletina is there to guide them and help children conquer their anxieties.
Skeletina and the In-Between World is a masterpiece that offers so much more than just a story. This captivating children’s picture book empowers kids to reclaim their dreams by facing and conquering their fears in the dream world and beyond.
This is done by introducing a beloved character named Skeletina who is fearless and fun-loving. Skeletina takes the kids who come into the in-between world and shows them how to conquer any fear or anxiety that they may feel. This is the perfect book to read as we countdown until Halloween!
