Teaching kids to be calm and cool with life's challenges becomes much easier when they learn they have choices in handling their emotions. Some Days I Flip My Lid follows third-grader Max as he develops self-awareness of his emotions by learning Mindfulness techniques called MINDFUL BREATHING and BREATHING ON PURPOSE. At school, on the playground and at home, Max develops skills not to flip his lid when he is scared, worried, sad or upset. A colorful and delightful story for the classroom, at bedtime or whenever your child needs a mindful reminder to be a calm, cool kid. BONUS material for educators, parents and caregivers includes step-by-step instructions for teaching Mindful Breathing.
