Supportive advice to help kids when they’re feeling disappointed.

Get Unstuck from Disappointment

illustrated by Sarah Jennings
$13.99

When things don’t go as expected or as planned, children may feel sad and upset, let down or angry. They may not want to join in for a while. Overcoming disappointment can be difficult, but this picture book helps with manageable strategies:
  • Think and do things differently
  • Say “well done” to the winners
  • Keep on trying
  • Have a Plan B
  • Feel gratitude for what you have
Sometimes feeling disappointed lasts a short while. Sometimes the disappointed feelings just won’t go away. But with these tools, kids can learn how to get unstuck and move on from disappointment. A section at the back of the book provides additional activity ideas for children and has a note to adults about how to support kids when they’re feeling disappointed.
