    Very young children don’t yet have the words to express strong feelings, and they’re still learning social skills. This book helps little ones understand why it’s better to use an indoor voice— “so people hear the words and not the yelling”—and how to calm down and ask for help so they can get what they need. Also includes tips for parents and caregivers. 24 pages

    423166 (Board book)
    ISBN:
    978-1-57542-316-6 (Board book)
    Age Focus: 2 and up

    Description & More Details

    Through rhythmic text and warm illustrations, this gentle, reassuring book offers toddlers simple tools to release strong feelings, express them, and calm themselves down. Children learn to use their calm-down place—a quiet space where they can take time out to cry, ask for a hug, sing to themselves or be rocked in a grown-up’s arms, talk about feelings, and breathe: “One, two, three . . . I’m calm as can be. I’m taking care of me.” After a break, toddlers will feel like new—and adults will, too.
