Most children feel sad every now and then. But for some, sadness can become a bigger and more difficult part of their lives than it should be. Kyle is one of those kids.

Kyle faces some challenges in school and at home. A few are easy for Kyle to "just get over," as he refers to it. But others are a lot tougher to deal with. When Kyle's sadness becomes apparent to others in his life, Mrs. Bell, a caring school counselor, steps in to help.

With guidance from Mrs. Bell and his parents, Kyle learns some new strategies for reframing his thinking when things aren't going well. Will Kyle be able to use these strategies to Start Acting Differently, develop other valuable skills, and build new relationships? Young readers will want to find out in this important and entertaining tale for K through 5 students from author and school counselor Bryan Smith.

The book also includes helpful parent and educator tips, along with links to free resources offered by the Boys Town National Hotline. 31 pgs.
