Emotional Management Picture Books BSK088

US$99.80-99.80

Once there was a bad mood and a stick. The stick appeared when a tree dropped it. Where did the bad mood come from? Who picked up the stick? And where is the bad mood off to now? You never know what is going to happen.

Sadness can be scary and confusing at any age! When we feel sad, especially for long periods of time, it can seem as if the sadness is a part of who we are--an overwhelming, invisible, and scary sensation. In When Sadness Is at Your Door, Eva Eland brilliantly approaches this feeling as if it is a visitor. She gives it a shape and a face, and encourages the reader to give it a name, all of which helps to demystify it and distinguish it from ourselves. She suggests activities to do with it, like sitting quietly, drawing, and going outside for a walk. The beauty of this approach is in the respect the book has for the feeling, and the absence of a narrative that encourages the reader to "get over" it or indicates that it's "bad," both of which are anxiety-producing notions.

What do you do when it seems as if nothing will make you happy? For one little girl, it’s a good time to take a survey, from subjects including a quick little rabbit (running around in a wheel) and a snazzy centipede (shoes, lots of shoes). Scott Menchin’s amusing story and his whimsical characters show us that doing what we love best can bring the biggest smiles of all.

George has absolutely no interest in exploring the world. None at all. He's far too busy enjoying his home life and baking delicious pastries. Or so he tells all his friends when they invite him along on their wonderful adventures. But when George's friend Pascal digs a little deeper, the real reason George refuses to travel away from home is finally revealed . . . From the children's book author of the acclaimed Herman and Rosie comes Gus Gordon's Somewhere Else.

从前有一朵坏情绪,谁要是生气了,它就会飘到谁的头顶。它从一个生气的小女孩,飘向了一个生气的妈妈,又飘向了一个被一只小浣熊吓到摔了一身泥的路人卢先生……你一定以为这些人都倒霉透了,但谁也没想到这些人都因为这朵坏情绪,发生了各种美妙的事情。

你知道吗?每个人都有一个好朋友,它的名字叫悲伤。它会时不时地来敲敲门。别害怕,它可能只是想和你一起画个画,喝杯热巧克力,再出去走一走。抱抱它,然后温柔地跟它说再见吧!

豆豆不开心了。她跑去问大家——什么能让你开心呢?泡澡能让狗狗开心,倒着睡觉能让蝙蝠开心,而豆豆也发现做鬼脸、吸面条、扮大人……都能让自己开心呢!当你不开心的时候,跟着这本书,找到让你开心起来的小事吧!

小鸭子才没有找借口呢!他只是真的太忙啦,所以每次别的鸟儿邀请他飞去别的地方,他都只能拒绝。毕竟他要忙着看电视——虽然他没有电视机,还要忙着写回忆录——虽然他才五岁……他真的是因为太忙了,而不去别的地方吗?直到有一天,他的好朋友熊先生发现,其实所有事情都是借口,小鸭子只是不敢告诉大家自己不会飞。在勇敢地承认了害怕的事情后,小鸭子在熊先生的帮助下,终于解决了不会飞的问题,不再找借口的小鸭子也体会到了尝试新事物的美妙。
