A picture book about a rambunctious boy who learns to manage his big feelings.
 
 


Sometimes Dash gets so excited that his chest feels warm and fuzzy, his toes dance, and his fingertips tickle the air. When that starts, he can’t seem to control what he does next, and often, trouble follows.
 
Luckily, with a little help, Dash finds a way to slow himself down when big feelings threaten to take over.
 
This joyous book introduces a clever technique to engage the imagination and relax the mind, perfect for those who are impulsive like Dash, those who hold in their feelings, and everyone in between.
 
Praise for Stop and Smell the Cookies:

"A humorous yet compassionate portrayal of the challenges of self-regulation . . . Dash’s zest for life is palpable, as are both the tension that builds as he’s about to do something wrong and his contrition afterward. It’s clear that Dash is a good kid whose big feelings overwhelm him.” —Kirkus Reviews
