SKU: D546-Net

Awesome Dawson knows one thing for sure- he has BIG emotions. Bigger than the whole world!

Who’s the boss? Awesome Dawson or his BIG emotions?

When Dawson is told to turn off the TV and go to bed, he huffs and puffs and kicks the couch. He’s not ready for bed just yet. When Dawson is told to put his shoes on for school, he shouts and pouts. He’d rather stay home and build stuff with Dad. When Dawson sees Harvey, his best bud, he leaps high in the air and then comes crashing down on him. And when Dawson spills paint all over his most-favorite shirt, he panics and gasps for breath. He fears his shirt is ruined.

Dawson experiences lots of strong emotions – anger, sadness, excitement, and worry. Each one feels gigantic. Can he, with the help of a caring teacher, find a way to harness those emotions in a safe, healthy way? Or will Dawson’s biggest feelings be the boss of him?

Bestselling author Julia Cook and renowned play therapist Dr. Rebeca Chow team up in this colorful, empowering story about how to stop emotions from spinning out of control. A special page written by Dr. Chow, who is a clinical counselor and registered play therapist, offers practical strategies parents and educators can use to help children manage their big emotions.
