Fall apart. Flip out. Flip your lid. Break down. Meltdown. Explode. Throw a tantrum. Lose your temper. Come unglued. Go bonkers.

There are so many different names for when we lose our cool because there are so many different ways for humans to lose it when life gets chaotic! This book provides the tips, tricks, and tools to guide young readers through understanding what's happening in their bodies as their big emotions take over. Throughout there are quizzes, truth bombs, freakout facts and more to give young readers a moment to pause, reflect, and most importantly, to find a little humor coming unglued.
