My new book for ages 6-12 is out!
Growing Feelings: A Kids' Guide to Dealing with Emotions about Friends and Other Kids

Here's the trailer:

Kids' biggest feelings are often about friends. This entertaining and empowering book features relatable cartoons, practical, research-based coping strategies, plus silly commentary from a cat and dog who have their own (questionable) ideas about what might help.

This is a sequel to my earlier book, Growing Friendships: A Kids' Guide to Making and Keeping Friends. With both books, our goal was to give kids a funny and guide to friendship that's never preachy or boring

"This warm, wise, accessible book belongs in the hands of every elementary-school-aged child." -- Lisa Damour, PhD, author of Untangled

"A helpful primer for navigating the emotional ups and downs of friendship." -- Kirkus

"As an educator and librarian, we are always looking for books that add a little humor and understanding to today's youth challenges. This book is one of them and I highly recommend it. I felt empowered reading this and I know other readers will feel the same way." -- D. Carpenter
