This is a great little story to help small kids understand that they are in control of their emotions. It focuses on the ownership of feelings and emotions and taking command of the situation, instead of letting things "happen" to you.

My son adores this book about dealing with anger and upset feelings, and it makes an excellent bedtime story as it guides children through physical relaxation and deep breathing. The illustrations don't exactly rock my world, but if the kids love it that's good enough for me! Highly recommend this to parents of young children.

My 9 year old has mild-moderate anxiety brought on by school and any type of testing. This book was recommended by his therapist who has had a lot of success treating other kids his age. He loved the story and practices the stress-management techniques in this story throughout his day. What a blessing Lori Lite and Stress Free Kids has been to our family.

A book that is intended to teach children how to relax and try to not act upon their anger. However, I did not think the pictures or story were anything special but it did get its lesson across on how to deal with anger.
