With awesome, awful creatures at his back, Simon feels powerful—for a while, anyway. An incredible tool for children, parents, and educators, Simon’s story is a creative visual representation and guide for children, encouraging the recognition of feelings and equipping kids with positive strategies for managing anger in a constructive way.
