The Zoo in You™

The Zoo in You™, written by ELE Founder and CEO, Christina Trevino, was designed to teach children to recognize, respect and talk about their emotions using warm storytelling and loveable characters. This book engages your child’s natural curiosity as they explore and identify the first four emotions:
happy, sad, angry and scared.

But, it's not only a book. The Zoo in You™ is an innovative educational program that highlights emotional development. It is designed to make it easier to communicate with children about their emotions and behavior in terms they can easily understand. Children who grasp the impact of emotions grow into strong leaders as they move from childhood to adulthood.

We offer coloring and activity books, available for all ages, that complement our imaginative story books. The series is designed to help your child and family members discover and explore their Range of Emotions™. Together, they’ll gain self-esteem, build self-awareness, and improve communication about their feelings.

About the Zoo in You™

The Zoo in You™ is sprinkled with self-development wisdom and uses a child’s love of animals to teach them about their feelings. Emotion Leadership’s Human Spirit formula provides the framework for children to process emotions mentally and physically for healthy well-being.

You'll meet our plucky zoo guide, Sami, Hugzy the duck, and a cast of emotion-based characters that provide a structure and vocabulary to explore and share feelings. Sami discovers that she is the “ZooKeeper” of her emotional zoo, and that no emotion is “right” or “wrong.” After all, as Hugzy says: “feeling emotions makes a ZooKeeper strong.”

In 2013, The Zoo In You was featured at the Dr. Oz Emotional Health and Wellbeing Conference for Military Families. It was the only children's program selected.

"I didn't feel like I made dramatic changes in my life, but that's really the beauty of it all. She has a sixth sense for gleaning insight into your life, and giving you tools to realize and appreciate your individual gifts. I often hear her voice of reason, or see her sweet smile in my mind, as I continue on my "journey"... And for that, I am grateful."- RuthAnn, Global HR and Mother
