Petunia Skunk grabbed the strongest bottle of perfume she owned and sprayed and sprayed before going to school. Petunia stunk like a skunk and her tail had a mind of its own. It would always raise and spray whenever she felt any type of strong emotion. Her school friends whispered Pe-YEW-nia and other unpleasant variations of her name and no one liked sitting next to her. Petunia wasn't even able to say good morning to her teacher, Mrs. Whooo. What does Mrs. Whooo teach her students that day which helps Petunia to deal with the tail of hers.
The Stinky Thinky Tale: Brain Buddy Adventures #1 by Beth Bean is a wonderful book that teaches young readers about brains and conveys a positive and uplifting message on how to control their emotions. The illustrations are adorable and charming and they make the scenes vivid and give a good pace and movement to the story. I enjoyed the manner in which the author discusses brains, making it easy for children to understand, and she makes learning engaging and interesting. It is a good story to use in classrooms to help children learn and understand about the brain. The brain glossary at the end of the book, the breathing tips, and extension ideas are informative to readers. Are you all ready to take a deep breath in and slowly let it back out so that the amygdalas are under control? If not, let us start practicing now to have a good control over our emotions and how we react.
