Ravi's Roar byTom Percival
From the creator of Ruby Finds a Worry, a clever take on temper tantrums in a story about controlling big angry feelings.
Ravi never minded being the smallest in his family. Until one day, his short arms can’t reach the monkey bars, he can’t find anyone during hide-and-seek, AND he’s too little to ride the big slide. Ravi is so mad -- so furious -- that he can’t control his temper anymore . . . and he turns into a ferocious, roaring TIGER!
Tigers can do anything they want! But who wants to play with a growling, wild tiger who won’t share or behave? Ravi is about to discover something very important about voicing his feelings.
While we all get angry sometimes, Ravi's Roar shows some good ways to channel those emotions to avoid hurting family and friends.
The Big Bright Feelings picture book series provides kid-friendly entry points into emotional intelligence topics -- from being true to yourself to dealing with worries, managing anger, and making friends. These topics can be difficult to talk about. But these books act as sensitive and reassuring springboards for conversations about mental and emotional health, positive self-image, building self-confidence, and managing feelings.
