“As a therapist working with wounded children and adults I am always looking for powerful healing tools that speak to a child’s soul and heart. In the grand tradition of Dr. Seuss, these stories do just that. With a whimsical flare they cut through all the painful layers of resistance a child manifests just to survive and opens them up to the possibility for hope, healing and happiness. These books will definitely be in my tool box of solutions for life’s problems. I love them!”
-Jennie Murdock, LCSW

“I highly recommend this book to all parents of difficult children and others who struggle with helping their young ones understand the useless feelings of holding on to anger and defiance.”
-K. Max Park, LMFT Attachment Specialist

“The students can relate to the feelings expressed in this book, as well as the characters’ emotions. It has the perfect amount of humor and teaches a valuable lesson that kids, parents, and teachers will all enjoy. I love this story!”
-Jillian Willhite, Third Grade Teacher

“A great book that teaches children about angry feelings.”
-Jenny Bailey, Third Grade Teacher
