Sharing a story is a great way to help children who display challenging behaviour to recognise feelings and behaviours. The fun characters and humorous rhyming text in these story books can help engage great conversations about appropriate behavior and allow teachers/parents to address unwanted behaviour in a positive way and help children relate the behaviour to consequences.
