"I recently went on a search for tools to help my son better manage his behavior when angry or frustrated.This book has turned out to be a fantastic investment. My son loves the book and is now using the relaxation techniques introduced in the story regularly. I highly recommend this book as an excellent resource for helping children learn to calm down when over-stimulated or angry. The idea that the child is teaching the caterpillar is a brilliant touch empowering children to be responsible for their own emotions and even being an example to adults." - --Jillian Bloom - Amazon Books
