The School of Life for Kids
The School of Life for Kids is a resource for helping children to understand themselves and the world around them. We specialise in developing emotional literacy, giving young people the tools for comprehending and communicating their thoughts and feelings (and those of other people). Through our books, games and learning tools, we seek to find fun, imaginative ways to teach the best ideas from the worlds of philosophy, psychology, history, art, science and nature.
Beautifully written and illustrated, our books are used in classrooms and homes around the world as part of early years education.
About Our Tools for Kids
The range of teaching methods we offer — including poetry, activity books, guided journals and exercises — are designed to accommodate every child, no matter how they prefer to learn. We never dumb down or over-simplify; rather, trusting in the intelligence and curiosity of our young readers, we aim to make our wisdom as engaging and relatable as possible. Beautifully written and illustrated, our books are informed by experts in child psychology, and are used in classrooms and homes around the world as part of early years education.

Help with voicing thoughts and feelings
Emotions can be challenging (for children and adults alike), but the more we understand them, the better we can process and manage them.
Inspiring creativity and wonder
Practicing creative thinking can help us connect more with ourselves and what we truly enjoy.
Help with understanding the world
The world can be a scary place, but learning about the world can help us to understand it.
