After a brief guide for parents, on each two pages there is a story, titled on each page with a child's name on e.g. Eva/Lily/Nick/Joe etc.etc.
Then there is the appropiate title 'I can handle......fear/frustration/sadness and loss/big,big loss/anger/pain/embaressement/responsibility/guilt etc
In first person (i.e. the child 'Eva/Joe etc', a situation/story is described of a problem which results in the emotion in the title.
The solution tells us how 'Eva' handles this situation, what she thinks, what happened etc.
On the two pages there is a stick person, saying stuff like 'No matter what happens, I can handle it' or questioning 'How can I handle this?'.
Yes, we had discussed many of the suggestions in the book before, but these stories reinforce these ideas as being good ways of handling these situations, and I think Calon finds it good and useful to hear stories of other people going through these situations, what they do in these situations, and what happens when they implement these good ideas.
My only qualms are that I wish there was even more stories in it, as there are even more situations that could be included, but 50 stories is a lot so it's still 5 stars from me and calon. I hope for another book too though.
and some stories I would put in different categories than they are in, for example some that I would put under anger are under the titles of frustration or embaressment, but they are also stories of frustration/embaressment so that is fair enough.Read more ›
