    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.
