Snap’s Stories about Feelings are therapeutic stories and activities intended to help kids learn about and manage their own feelings. Anger, worry, fear, and sadness are among the feelings addressed in the stories and activities. Currently, the app features two stories: What's Your Lava Level?, about managing frustration, and Worried Wendall, about worry. More stories will be made available as they are completed. Kids can select a story, listen to the story, see it illustrated, and then practice what they have learned by completing the activity book. No reading is required, although kids may enjoy reading along with the story. No clinical training is necessary to use the app. Kids may use the app by themselves or with a parent or other caregiver. Counselors or therapists who work with children will find the app a welcome addition to their practices, as will teachers.
Story: Stories are read aloud and illustrated. Kids can follow along with the text if they choose.
Activity Book: Kids can free-paint or complete activity pages that reinforce the skills taught by each story. Each template contains prompts for completing the page, although kids can choose to complete the page without the prompts as well. Kids can save their pictures if they wish. Clinicians may choose not to save pictures if privacy is a concern.
The app is the first in a series from Snappy Kids, a company founded by a child psychotherapist and a design engineer. Snappy Kids products are all intended to help kids learn about and manage their feelings.

Ratings and Reviews
Excellent. Only criticism is after having paid for the app there's still additional charge for a story that may be one of the most critical with children! Love using it and the kids love it too!
This is an excellent and well done intervention that can be used in a session or recommended to parents to share at home with their children.
Great stories. Kids love these and they help. Please add more and don't charge .99 each additional.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
