The Angry Octopus by Lori Lite
The Angry Octotopus is a book that helps children (and adults) help take control of their emotions in a way that is healthy and productive.It is wrapped in a beautifully illustrated package, with a very cute story to match.
When octopus gets mad the sea child comes along and helps him to see that getting mad doesn't do any good,she helps him to calm down and together they rebuild what was lost, only to make it better than before.
This book is very well written, and it helps kids in a practical way to calm down with "progressive muscular relaxation," it gives them easy tips to remember to help them relax if they are mad or upset. The CD that can accompany this book has a very soothing male voice that reads this story as well as four others, it even has a bonus track of beautiful music with ocean sounds. The pair will make a great gift and addition to any book lovers collection.
Right now Connor enjoys the pictures, and listening to the story, but I think since he is not yet 2 he might not get all of the concepts, however this is one that will stay on our shelves and read often as I know it will be very helpful when he gets a little older.
I received a copy of this book to review from Mama's Emporium, the opinions are my own.This post contains affiliate links.
Mama's Emporium is a great online and physical shop located in Englewood, Colorado. With a wonderful owner dedicated to her products and the satisfaction they will provide her customers. She often seeks out the advice of the current customers to make sure she carried exactly what they want and need. (I even suggested Goddess Garden Sunscreen which she now carries!) She carries a great line of cloth diapers, and natural baby products. I can't wait to try more of her items! Check her out now at: www.mamasemporium.com/ (this one is not my affiliate link. :))
