I loved the way this book gave the child’s problem emotion and then the child thought up ways to fix or feel better about the problem. Could see this as a fabulous book on the counselor’s bookshelf in any elementary school.

I bought this for my autistic grandson. He is obsessed with this book.
Teresa GazdeckiCustomer
My 5 year old uses the mantra daily, saying, “I can handle it, mommy”. I have since bought 3 more copies for friends and have recommended it to several others.

Now when my daughter gets frustrated, I can ask her if she can handle it and we think of ways to deal with the situation without throwing a fit.
5 out of 5 stars. Gently empowering book that will charm girls into being brave

Probably the best educational book I have purchased from Amazon so far. Teaches boys not to get upset in certain scenarios. Quick and fun read. Kids love it.
