Published by Redleaf Press 2015 Teacher's Choice free sample chapter of The Amazing Erik

Sometimes when children are sad, it can be difficult for them to imagine ever feeling happy again.

Playing at the water table is fun. But Erik thinks getting splashed is not fun. When his sleeve gets wet, Erik gets sad, and he can't imagine ever being happy again. Then, with a classmate by his side, Erik becomes absorbed by a new idea: to make the water disappear. As it vanishes, Erik discovers his happiness has reappeared, like magic. Airdah-taroo!

Winner of the 2015 Learning Magazine Teacher's Choice Award for Children's Books, this story provides a helpful reminder to all children, including children with disabilities, that sadness is a temporary feeling. The book contains a page of information to help you connect the story to children's experiences, which makes it a great teaching tool for your classroom or child care setting.
Age focus: 3 and up. Hardcover, 32 pgs.

Review by: Lisa, Youth Services Librarian at a public library - February 5, 2014
I recommended that we get copies of this book and the five others by Mike Huber. They are all based on the everyday experiences of preschool-aged children at their daycare. They serve two audiences—one, the kids themselves. They are picture books with engaging illustrations and appropriate for ages 3 and up. But they also serve as great examples for early childhood educators. Mike Huber is a master teacher and provides trainings nationally for other early childhood educators. I recently passed these books on to a new early childhood educator and she loved them! She shared them with her own children, who really responded to the illustrations and the stories.
