REVIEWS "This book is a must-have resource for every professional who works with children who have BIG feelings. It is a simple step by step guide that supports our physiologically innate way of processing stressors which leads to an increase of resiliency." Carmen Heidecke, MA, SEP "I love this book because it provides real, concrete, step-by-step tools to help kids when they are experiencing those "big feelings." The story was easy for my son to understand, and the explanation of the science & activities in the back was easy for me to understand. It's a book that truly makes me feel empowered as a parent, instead of overwhelmed and helpless. I'm excited to work together with my son to explore his emotions and practice Jenifer's tips for handling them effectively. I wish more parenting books were this useful! I am eager to share this book with my friends." -Stephanie Matlock Allen, mom to a 3-year-old boy "Here is an engaging children’s story with BIG content! Jenifer’s explanation and intuitive terminology presents the brain’s protective mechanism that brings on strong emotions. As the story unfolds, Wise Owl shares with Peanut some practical ways to ease big feelings. Jenifer Trivelli writes from the heart – and the brain. Peanut and Wise Owl are endearing characters.” -Lucie Gouin "Peanut and the Big Feelings will be part of our routine! Having a 3 year old with lots of big feelings, I am very keen on having a systematic approach in hand to help us all navigate these challenging times. This is a book with an easy to follow dialogue between two very engaging characters for a child to follow, and a practical implementation guide for any parent to use. I am looking forward to working with my son on all of Wise Owl's lessons, and to watch my son grow like Peanut as he learns to use his inside tools to feel better about relating to the outside world!" -Shannon Forrestall, MSPT "This book is filled with helpful information for both parents and children. The step-by-step approach to coping with big feelings feels like something our family can use right away. The first time we read it, my child immediately asked me to read this book again.” - Melissa Lindley
