I Can Handle It! is the perfect book to help young ones especially in this time of pandemic. And its message is helpful for both young and old!
Sebastian is a young boy who goes through various emotions, for example, being sad when his best friend is mad at him or frustrated when adults don't listen. He then goes through various scenarios about how he will handle them. Some are funny or silly and others are simple but powerful solutions on dealing with these emotions or situations. I love that the author names specific emotions, such as annoyed, ashamed, miserable and cranky. This helps children recognize and voice how they are feeling in an intellectual way rather than just feel the emotion in a physical way. When a child learns how to be specific about what he/she is feeling, such as "I am feeling lonely" or "I am feeling scared", then these specific emotions can be addressed as well as their underlying cause.
I was truly impressed by this book. With a few sentences, it demonstrates to a child that when problems arise there are ways of coping and dealing with them and it's up to us to choose how to handle them. "I can handle it": four small words that can help us believe in ourselves. I'm a big fan of positive psychology. The earlier in life we learn how to positive self-talk the better it is for our mental health.
I Can Handle It! is an excellent resource book and would make a good addition to any home or school library. Highly recommended.
