From the best-selling author of How Are You Feeling Today?, this thoughtful picture book teaches children how to find new ways of expressing themselves.'Why am I losing my temper?' 'Why am I being grumpy?' This important book prompts children to think about certain behaviours and why they happen. Addressing common situations in a sympathetic and informative way, What Makes Me Do The Things I Do? answers key behavioural concerns and encourages children to self-reflect, consider how their actions affect others and manage their emotions. This book is ideal to share with young children, or to give to older children to read independently.Written in a child-friendly tone, this picture book explores 12 typical behaviours that children engage in - including not doing what they're told, telling lies and giving up - and explores where they come from and how to manage them. There are fun, colourful illustrations by Sarah Jennings throughout and helpful notes for parents and carers at the back of the book.
