“David Gets in Trouble” by David Shannon

Dealing with a cranky toddler or preschooler?  Here is a list of books about handling emotions, and hopefully emerging unscathed.  No Fits, Nilson and Maya was Grumpy are two new favorites at my house.  They’ve helped us all to recognize that everyone gets grumpy from time to time, but you don’t have to stay mad.  When in doubt, take a cue from Daniel Tiger and count to four:

Feelings by Aliki

Theo’s Mood by Maryann Cocca-Leffler

Doodle Bites by Polly Dunbar

No More Biting for Billy Goat by Bernette Ford

Olive and the Bad Mood by Tor Freeman
