Industry Trade Mag - Dr. L. Teegarden
I am a clinical psychologist who purchased this book for my children (ages 4 and 6). They love the book! The first time I read the book to them, they both engaged in the progressive muscle relaxation without any prompting from me
back of book - Lynne Goldman Johannesen
With all the demands of busy young lives that children face today, how nice that an octopus and a friendly sea child can model appropriate anger management in a fun, easy and peaceful method

    Are you serious?

    I am outraged that we just paid over $6 for this book! You can't even see the pages clearly enough to read them. Who knows if it's a good story? We cant tell you because we cant see it!

    I was referred to this book by a colleague of mine who works with kids
    7-12 who suffer from emotional challenges along with severe anxiety.
    Although the kids in my practice are a little younger they LOVE the book
    and have taken to the technique in the story. Their parents see
    first-hand results of using muscular relaxation especially at bedtime. I
    highly recommend the paperback or eBook version on iTunes. I don't think
    the Nook has a big enough screen.

    We had no problems viewing this story which is an excellent tool to help kids learn how to relax and calm down. Both my 'high energy' kids were relaxed and falling asleep half way through the story. I just bought the paperback version and iTunes App to have at all times. Will look at other books as well. What a great concept!

    My kids ask to read this story every night. After the first month I substituted the CD and they turn it on themselves. Now they listen to the story every night and wake rested and happy.

    Both of my kids (ages 6 and 9) have anxiety and a tough time at bedtime.
    They love reading this story and following the octopus along to learn
    the relaxation exercise. What a cute way of teaching them how to manage
    their anxiety. Most nights they are ready for bed right after reading
    the book. I bought the CD to put on if they need a little more relaxation.
