Praise For…

"An adventure, an emotional journey, a course in empowerment-this SEL-appropriate story will find a home with preschoolers and give them words for their own wobbly moments."
-- School Library Journal

"I love the fun visual of a tantrum as this gelatinous blob that overtakes everything. It's pretty accurate! The vivid colors are eye-catching and the guide to Bad Moods at the back of the book is a handy reference for littles. Elementary counselors and teachers would benefit from having a copy of this one and revisiting it often!"
-- Little Cub Literacy

"Funny, respectful, and cathartic-exhilarating."
-- Kirkus Reviews, STARRED

"Kids and grownups alike will recognize toddler and preschooler triggers… Never making fun of Barbara or the frustration that leads to a tantrum, Barbara Throws a Wobbler takes a sensitive approach to identifying what sets a Wobbler off, and how to shrink it back down once it appears."
-- Mom Read It
