It was morning,
the start of a new day.
As soon as Rachel opened her eyes, she felt sad.
She didn’t even want to get out of bed.
This beautifully illustrated story brings children’s feelings to life.
Put on rose-colored glasses, and instantly feel happier and think things around you are better.
The eyeglasses in the book give children a sense of control that helps them cope with their feelings of sadness.
It’s not like the toolbox in your house that holds a hammer and nails and a screwdriver. It’s a toolbox for your mind, body, and emotions.
It includes your thoughts, feelings, and fantasies.
You can take the tool in each book in the series and teach yourself how to use it to feel much better!
