Review: One To Ten: Squirrel's Bad Day by:Carole P. Roman
About the Book:
Squirrel is rushing along a tree limb when she trips, losing all her acorns into the rushing water of the river below. Angry and frustrated, she doesn't know what to do. Her good friend, Rabbit, lends both a sympathetic ear as well as a solution. Rather than get angry, Rabbit tells her, rate the problem on a scale of one-to-ten. By identifying and realizing the true importance of the issue, the issue may not seem so overwhelming. Adorable forest creatures help the sad squirrel put everything into perspective so he does not to get stuck in a rut over something that may not be a big deal after all.
As always, Carole Roman hits it out of the ball park with, One To Ten: Squirrel's Bad Day. Poor squirrel worked so very hard at gathering her acorns only to trip and lose them all. But as always she has a good friend come along to help her manage her sad feelings. Rabbit teaches her what her mom taught her to do when she gets upset.
In an effort to help our kiddos manage their feelings easier they too, can use this system to scale just how bad to feel about certain situations that can sometimes be very overwhelming to them. A great way to manage those stressful times.
