Even Superheros Have Bad Days

Even Superheroes Have Bad Days

Sterling Children's Books, 2016. Picture Book.

Everyone has bad days. Even superheroes? Yes! Superheroes have days just like the rest of us. With their superpowers they could cause havoc venting their frustration, but they choose not to. This book describes how superheroes choose to regulate their emotions in healthy ways instead of using their powers for destruction and evil. It is a great way to talk to children, especially those who struggle with frustration, about how they can feel emotions but control their reactions. Plus, when they practice they get to be like the superheroes in the book. Every kid wants to be a superhero and this book helps to make everyday struggles just a little cooler.
