Description

Kids who have trouble adjusting to the unexpected and tend to overreact can learn four steps for achieving flexible thinking in this story. Learning how to react appropriately to challenging situations is an important executive function skill for students in grades K through 6.

Braden was so excited for his upcoming championship baseball game! The night before he dreams of that moment... THE moment... the oohs and ahhs of the crowd as he scores the game-winning run! But imagine his surprise when he woke up to pouring rain... and NO GAME! A cancelled game, coupled with some events at school that don't go his way, send Braden on an overreaction tailspin! It seems no matter how small the setback, Braden lets disappointment ruin his mood and his day. 

Will Braden be able to recover from his overreacting tendencies and practice the tips of flexible thinking that his teacher and mom teach him? Find out in the second picture book of the Executive FUNction series by Bryan Smith. Tips for parents and educators are included at the end of the story to help children learn to manage their emotions and practice flexible thinking. 31 pgs.
