With a classic wit, Sharon Hamovitz addresses the subject of gas, the intestinal kind, with a matter-of-fact humor sure to make children and grown-ups of all ages giggle. Without getting graphic, Hamovitz introduces various circumstances where passing gas just happens to humans and animals alike. And she does it all in rhyme! She also presents various circumstances familiar to kids and grown-ups from sitting in a restaurant to playing on the beach. Young and old will delight in the colorful and silly illustrations, beautifully rendered by Patti Colwell, as they identify with many of the scenarios presented in the book. As with the classic fables, Just Like Gas ... This Too Shall Pass! presents a moral, teaching kids and grown-ups that no matter what they're going through, they'll get through it. The titles many translations give the book an international flare with translations in Portugese, French, Dutch, Japanese, German, Hebrew, and more! Included in the book are "Positive Mental Attitude" cards to cut out and pass out. Hamovitz encourages others that if they change their attitudes, they can change their lives with the message, "No matter what you are going through ... things change. You can do it! You'll get through it! Just Like Gas ... This Too Shall Pass!"
