Emma, a sweet little porcupine, is happiest when surrounded by candies, until the day she takes candy without asking. Will she let the deed sit unhappily in her stomach, or will she share the truth?
This is a story of a grumpy croissant who learns to control his anger by taking ten deep breaths.
I love the usage of mindfulness techniques as Croissant takes some deep breaths. I could see this book being a jumping off point to talk about frustration and anger with young kids and to teach them ways to work through their frustrations in a healthy way. This is one I’d love to see in elementary classrooms for sure.
The Grumpy Frumpy Croissant is such a cute book that teaches kids about anger and a way on how to deal with it. The illustrations were fun and helped make the book a delight to read. I liked the recipes and coloring sheets at the end of the book. This would be a great book to help teach children social skills and anger.
Too adorable not to like. If my niece was having a bad day, this would be a great book to use to start the conversation.
The illustrations where very clear and colourful; for the kids in my class that struggle with facial recognition, the emotion of each little character was clear to them. The kids were very engaged the entire time during the read. I loved the recipe for croissants and the colouring pages at the end of the book. It was a nice and thoughtful touch.
