- About EQ Explorers -

Studies show that emotional intelligence (EQ) is a key component to living a happy, successful life. And—unlike IQ—EQ can be learned.


Each book in the EQ Explorers series is designed to educate and inspire children through beautifully illustrated, creative-yet-relatable tales. With each story, the author shares a simple and powerful principle of happiness and emotional wellness—one adventure at a time.

"I want every child and parent to have the tools to live happy, healthy, and emotionally connected lives."

With passion and determination, Kim created a multi-faceted initiative to empower children—and in turn, their parents and caregivers—to live big, bold, authentically happy lives.

I read it to my six-year-old and we both enjoyed the story and cute illustrations. I was pleasantly surprised at how well my son was able to explain what the book taught him when we finished reading. The book shows that it’s best to be your own self—no one can do that better than you! My nine-year-old read the book to himself and also got the message. Now I can remind them “Don’t be Compare Bear” and they instantly know what I mean.
