Teaching children to be calm and cool with life’s challenges can be easier when they learn coping skills to handle their emotions.

Some Nights I Flip My Lid follows 4th grader Grace who holds it together at school as she navigates the stressors of being a kid but unravels once in the safety of her home. Together with her family, she learns mindfulness strategies to help manage big emotions after a long day. This sequel to the bestseller Some Days I Flip My Lid is a colorful and delightfully engaging story for home or school, or whenever your child needs a mindful moment to be calm and cool.

Bonus material for families, caregivers, and educators, including step-by-step instructions for teaching mindful grounding techniques!

Kellie and Hannah Baily have done it again. They eloquently capture what I imagine we have all felt at times, both as young and adult learners. Their combined ability to put into words and images the internal dialogue of many of our students is powerful. Some Nights I Flip My Lid is an excellent text to use with children (and educators) as we work to infuse metacognitive and social emotional learning practices into our wok in schools and homes.
