As a Special Education major this book would be an excellent example of behavioral literature to use in the classroom. It is a story of a little girl with a short tempter who learns how to associate colors with her feelings. This book gives students the opportunity to learn about anger management while also incorporating colors. Sometimes I'm Bumbaloo would be an excellent option for both a special education classroom as well as a regular inclusive classroom. It ( )

This is a great book to talk about when things happen that make us angry. In a manner that is easily relateable for children, the author is able to let a child know that it is ok to be angry . The book is able to offer talking points about being angry and going to a place to calm down. ( )

Book description
Katie Honors describes how she loses control when her younger brother messes up her work, and then how she resolves her anger and makes a positive choice.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0439669413, Paperback)

Most of the time Katie Honors is a good kid. But sometimes, when her baby brother has knocked over one too many of her beautiful castles, Katie becomes Bombaloo. She uses her fists and feet instead of her words. Her toys "end up all over the floor--and so does my brother." It takes some alone time, a lot of parental understanding, and a silly episode with flying underwear to calm Bombaloo down again and return her to her happy Katie Honors state.

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, reminiscent of the art of Lane Smith, Giselle Potter, and Maira Kalman. 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. (Ages 3 to 7) --Emilie Coulter
