All kids have trouble getting a grip on their emotions, sometimes—even young superheroes! But what do they do when they’re having a bad day? Colorful action-packed illustrations and a dynamite rhyming text reveal the many ways superheroes (and ordinary children, too) can resist the super-temptation to cause a scene when they’re sad, mad, frustrated, lonely, or afraid. From burning off steam on a bike or a hike, to helping others, this energetic picture book has plenty of fun ideas to help kids cope when they’re feeling overwhelmed.
This book talks about how superheroes have powers that could cause them to do crazy things if they were having a bad day, but they choose to do the right thing and act like superheroes should. This is a great book to demonstrate what you can do to regulate your emotions, and I love that it shows superheroes doing this, as a good standard for kids to emulate. It’s ok to have a bad day, but it’s what you do with your emotions that matters.
