Too often kids' feelings get ignored. This series helps children and adults accept and acknowledge their emotions. It also helps them distinguish between feelings and actions. Even more important, the stories give kids several ways to cope with feelings by utilizing the books' "choose-your-own-ending" format. They also allow parents and teachers to discuss other situations in a nonjudgmental way. How can kids diffuse their anger? Your kids get to decide what Matt should do when his little brother ruins his favorite baseball card. "I'm so angry inside I can't think!" he tells his mother.
