    I am a behavioral therapist treating children with Autism and so far this book has proved to be a vital tool for dealing with anxiety-related behaviors. The number/rating scale helps children gauge their own level of anxiety without having to come up with the right words to say and then gives them the tools to calm themselves down instead of hitting, biting, etc. Highly recommended!!

    I bought this for my 5-year-old son, and I thought he would throw it across the room, because he often rejects my attempts at “talking through” his anger. But he was fascinated and seemed quite relieved to have been given a strategy to help himself. He often speaks in terms of feeling like a “5” or a “3”. It is, for me, a helpful context for understanding his moods. That night, after we first worked through the book, he wrote me a picture and a card saying, “Thank you, Mama. I love the book.” I am now about to check out some of the other books by this author. Although these books are published by the “autism- asberger” society, or some such organization, I think it is invaluable for any child who struggles with feelings that feel too big…

    This book is an excellent tool for children having diffiulties controlling their emotions. The visual thermometer and the “social story” makes it very helpful to assist these children to learn how to respond to their feelings/emotions more appropriately. My four year old likes to look at his thermometer and read the story every time he has reached a “5”. It’s been very helpful for him.
