What Makes Me Do The Things I Do?: A picture book for starting conversations about behaviour and emotions with children

(Author) (Illustrator)


From the best-selling author of How Are You Feeling Today?, this thoughtful picture book teaches children how to find new ways of expressing themselves.

'Why am I losing my temper?' 'Why am I being grumpy?' This important book prompts children to question certain behaviours and why they happen. Addressing common situations in a sympathetic and humorous way, What Makes Me Do The Things I Do? answers key behavioural concerns and encourages children to self-reflect, consider how their actions affect others and manage their emotions. This book is ideal for sharing with young children, or to give to older children to read independently.

Written in child-friendly language, this picture book explores 12 typical behaviours that children engage in - such as temper tantrums, telling lies or cheating – and offers 12 constructive behaviours to consider instead, like staying calm, being honest or playing fairly. There are fun, colourful illustrations by Sarah Jennings throughout and helpful notes for parents and carers at the back of the book, with tips for encouraging positive behaviour early on.
