Customer Reviews

Great book for children in families with intense emotions

Excellent book for children ages 6 to 10 whose parents have emotion management issues and/or frequent temper outbursts. The book explains well how to feel and react appropriately in these difficult situations. Written with the main character being a young boy whose mother has emotional challenges, this book is also appropriate for girls or for children whose fathers have issues, although it may take an adult to explain the transfer of story to reality for these children.
