About the Books

 

one-to-ten-squirrels-bad-dayOne To Ten: Squirrel’s Bad Day

Written by Carole P. Roman

Illustrations by Mateya Arkova

Squirrel is running along a tree limb when she trips, losing all her acorns into the rushing water of the river below. Angry and frustrated, she doesn’t know what to do. Her good friend, Rabbit, lends both a sympathetic ear as well as a solution. Rather than get angry, Rabbit tells her, rate the problem on a scale of one-to-ten. By identifying and realizing the true importance of the issue, the issue may not seem so overwhelming. Adorable forest creatures help the sad squirrel put everything into perspective so he does not to get stuck in a rut over something that may not be a big deal after all.

“As well as being a story with likable characters, Roman’s book can be used as a tool to aid in conversations about difficult situations and also to help soothe the minds of young worriers. Highly Recommended.”—The Children’s Book Review

    December 22, 2016
  • Books and stories are useful for lots of life lessons.

    December 22, 2016
  • How do I encourage children, by telling them to try again because it has often taken some of the greatest people on Earth more than once to get something right. That by not giving up they show themselves to be brave and strong.

    December 22, 2016
  • I would encourage anyone looking for a silver lining to have a sense of proportion and to realize that they are not very important.

    December 22, 2016
  • I show them how with kindness that is usually reciprocated, but not expected. It never hurts to be kind and help those who need it. As adults, it’s our job to model good behavior most of the time and wait for the ripple effect.

    December 23, 2016
  • I try to calm children down and read them a light hearted story

    December 24, 2016

    December 26, 2016

    December 26, 2016
  • we do a lot of reading to them and we talk to them about life,

    December 27, 2016
  • The thing that helps the most, I think, is our daily “practice” of gratitude. At bedtime every night we tell each other five things we’re grateful for, specific to that day. That daily reminder of everything we’re grateful to have in our lives keeps us thinking positively on an ongoing basis.

    December 28, 2016
  • I give them the values and principles which guide them towards a productive and happy life and show them and teach them how life can be.

    December 30, 2016
  • I validate their feelings, then remind them how lucky we are and how much we have to be grateful for. I usually tell a story from my own childhood. That helps 🙂

    December 30, 2016
  • Reading, especially reading together, helps parents and children bond and learn!

    December 30, 2016
  • I always encourage the kids to do better the next time and not dwell on mistakes for too long. I want them to say “that’s ok” and “we can do better next time”.

    December 31, 2016
  • I guess I’d try to teach them to look at what happened rationally instead of reacting emotionally?

    January 1, 2017

    January 3, 2017

    January 3, 2017

    January 3, 2017

    January 3, 2017

    January 3, 2017

    January 11, 2017
  • Looking for the silver lining is inherent if you are always looking for a solution to the problem at hand, being in the moment, and appreciating things. We learn to pay attention!

    January 11, 2017
  • Due to my health, my children and grandchildren have learned to find the silver lining, even if it’s only to laugh at life’s curveballs! They have helped me by pointing out the positive things about my journey.

    January 12, 2017
  • I really don’t have to encourage my grandchild to look for the silver lining. When I’m upset or sad about something, my granddaughter tells me that it will be alright, things will be better, and that she loves me. Sometimes children see the silver lining better than adults do.

    January 12, 2017
  • talk to them

    January 12, 2017

    January 21, 2017
