The Big Red Bird is a delightful caring feathered friend. In this story, she becomes very upset after she notices some children yelling, arguing and name calling at one another. But the The Big Red Bird knew a wonderful skill to help herself calm down so she could think better about doing the right thing. Then she teaches the children how to use this skill using some of her red feathers.
This book provides a fun, unforgettable way children can improve their self-regulation when they are upset, or feel an urge to act out. It is a valuable resource for children who have difficulties with impulse control.
Included are several worksheets at the end to reinforce the lesson. The book also includes game instructions and a package with some real red feathers for “The Red Feather Game.” This can be played by one or more children and will enhance the techniques learned from the story.
