the book explains what it is like to be 5 and all the things the main character does and the events that take place. the book helps children learn how to express their emotions in a positive ways and lerning steps to get ther. the book also explains what a 5 year old might be thinking/how their brain is working because sometimes your mind is thinking one thing and your mouth says something different.

Learning not to hit? Having to wait your turn? Sitting still? It's definitely hard to be five. Its hard to dela with growing up and not being able to do the same things you used to be able to do. Would recommend for a small group maybe even one on one.
Age 5
