We read Shrieks and Sounds and Things Abound as a family and all 3 of us loved this one! I thought the story was super cute and well done, the lessons within these pages are valuable for children and even adults alike.

As a parent we do a lot of of research into things we introduce to our children to and I loved that Drew Palacio has experience in Psychology and uses his experience to create a lovely story with real life tactics to help children regulate their big emotions. I also really loved that the story rhymed it reminded me of many stories I read growing up.

We will definitely keep this one on our book shelf to read again and again.
