Then, these story books were taught to a group of 30 students between 8 to 14. In addition, the classroom observation was gathered and also after teaching the story books, an unstructured interview was conducted regarding the students’ opinions about the story book. The results indicated that the developed story books are valid enough to improve 8 to 14-year-old students’ emotional literacy.
