The text appears to be good but my arc copy had no images and was missing the end of the book. It’s hard to get the full story then.

I teach Kindergarten and have kids that throw tantrums. This book reiterates the basic strategy of breathing to calm down. But, the story line was flat and not one I think students can appreciate.

Very cute book about handling emotions for little kids. I love the way they described anger like dragons breath and emotions being a wave. Definitely a good resource for little ones learning how to manage big emotions.

*received from netgalley for honest review* This isn't as good as other similar books ive read but still could be helpful. Explained things for the most part to kids but there was just something missing I cant put my finger on.

Feelings are like waves; they rise and rise and after a while they drift away.

A resource to help your young children manage their feelings of anger, anxiety, frustration. My daughter is a parents as teacher where she helps parents deal with their children feelings. As parents, we need to teach children that these feelings are normal but they need help dealing with them. As parents, we can make big mistakes that can affect our children for a life time and ultimately affect our relationship with them. Emotions are not to be denied but to be dealt with. With mental health such an issue now, it may be that we have not raised our children to deal with these emotions in a healthy way.

I did receive an ARC and unfortunately, I did not have the illustrations, however, I appreciate the message that emotions are valid. This is a read out loud book to work with your child to identify emotions and the simple things we can do to relieve anxiety. Such as breathing. The important message in this book is that a child is not alone. As an adult with children, this may resonate with you that you don't want your children growing up with emotions that are harmful to their mental well being. If you are an advocate for mental well being, this may help for a solution.

A Special Thank you to Madeleine Matthews and Netgalley for the ARC and the opportunity to post an honest review
