Sometimes I'm Bombaloo

Sometimes, Katie loses her temper. Sometimes she uses her feet and her fists instead of words. When Katie is this mad, she's just not herself. Sometimes, she's BOMBALOO! Being Bombaloo is scary — it's not fun to feel out of control, and sometimes she says or does things that hurt the people she cares about. Fortunately, the caring adults around her teach her how a little time-out and a lot of love can calm Bombaloo down.... and help Katie feel like Katie again!

This empathetic picture book shows kids that we can all get carried away by our emotions sometimes — and that doesn't mean we can't apologize and try to make up for our mistakes later. Adults sharing the story with kids will also be reminded that kids aren't trying to be bad when they're out of control, encouraging them to respond in a firm but kind way. Kids like Katie will be glad to have a model for how to stop being Bombaloo... and what to do afterward.

Description

"There aren't too many kids who won't be able to relate to award-winning author Rachel Vail's miniature version of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Katie's rage is scary and reflected alarmingly well by illustrator Yumi Heo's collage, pencil, and paint illustrations...The message is clear: sometimes we get angry — really, really angry — but it's important to calm down eventually and make it up to those we may have hurt." — Emilie Coulter, Amazon.com Reviews
