About The Crying Girl Who Found Her Power

As hard as she tries, Nora can’t seem to self-calm when overwhelmed with emotions and no one in her family seems to understand why. In this witty story, Nora learns calming techniques and discovers alternative ways to behave when frustrated.


This cheerful book evokes joy and healthy dialogue to help children think about how they behave differently when they’re frustrated, learn their triggers, and come up with solutions.
