Kyle is a fourth-grader who sometimes feels blue and out of sorts. He’s not sure why, but he can never bounce back when he gets into a funk. When things go wrong at school or home, he can’t shake it off and just move on. With the help of a kind teacher, Kyle learns how to recognize and manage his sadness by reframing his attitude and learning how to Start Acting Differently. It is important for children to know that sometimes feeling sad is a normal emotion and a part of life. Author Bryan Smith gives young readers the tools to manage and work through their feelings of sadness. Includes special tips for parents and educators.32 pages
