About The Main Characters In Our Emotional Wellbeing Series  Of Kid Books

There is a great deal of confusion today about what human emotional life is like and how it operates, not only in children but in adults as well.  Confusion affects things at home.  It affects things in school.  It affects things at work. 

The main story book characters in the Emotional Wellbeing Series by Denise Marie Mari, Ph.D. and Lynn Marie Knapke, M.A. have been developed according to the wisdom and teachings of Catholic medical doctor, professor, and counselor Dr. Anna Terruwe.  Her extensive knowledge base about child emotional development is a gift to parents, children and families from all walks of life.  This website and its contents are a memorial to Dr. Anna's life and works.
