Headline Kids Educational Series
Handling Emotions–early reader


Mom’s Choice Award Silver (Ages 5 – 8) Self-Improvement

In Agitated children relate to everyday situations that push their buttons…and learn some strategies they can use to deal with unpleasant feelings. Children are attracted to the simple, colorful button people and join in to chant, “Agitated! Agitated! Agitated!’ Parents and teachers who read and reread Agitated to children can later use it as a point of reference to help children choose acceptable ways to reduce stress. This is an excellent classroom and home resource to spark conversation and create your own scenarios from simple materials that children love to use.

The Headline Kids Educational Series is a continuing series of books for the classroom, parents, and home schoolers. Each new and entertaining book will have a different subject and educational material. These authors are also available for school visits and workshops

An award-winning author, O’Brien says she has learned so much from kids and has used that knowledge to create books and programs available at Her stories reflect concerns from a kid’s point of view, with illustrations that will spark conversations about feelings and inspire children to do art with simple materials. O’Brien’s book, Agitated, was named best Self-Improvement Book (Ages 5 – 8) by the Mom’s Choice Awards, which honors the best in family-friendly products.
