Editorial Reviews

Review

“A creative, calming, and affirming book for every child.”
—Patty Wetterling, cofounder, Jacob Wetterling Resource Center


 “If families followed the advice in On Those Runaway Days, fewer kids would choose to run from home.”—Maureen Blaha, Executive Director, National Runaway Switchboard



“The simple color illustrations add a comforting touch to this highly recommended picturebook, ideal for parents (or teachers) to read aloud to children as a lead-in to talking about tough issues, and as a preventative to teach children about better options than running away before a crisis happens.”—Midwest Book Review

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
On Those Runaway Days is a children's picturebook created especially to help teach children to see running away for what it truly is: a dangerous means of avoiding problems rather than learning how to confront and fix them. The straightforward text offers young readers simple means with which to constructively deal with problems instead. "When I feel scared or upset, that 'uh-oh' feeling starts inside me. It's a signal that reminds me to get out of the situation right away and find an adult I trust. My 'uh-oh' feeling is telling me this is one of those times. I need to stop running away and talk about how I feel." The simple color illustrations add a comforting touch to this highly recommended picturebook, ideal for parents (or teachers) to read aloud to children as a lead-in to talking about tough issues, and as a preventative to teach children about better options than running away before a crisis happens.

My daughter is 2 years old and she seems to gravitate towards this book often. I assume it is because of the colorful and playful illustrations...but as a mom, I am so excited about the message of this book. We will be reading it year after year!

On Those Runaway Days is a great tool to use to help children recognize and deal with their emotions. It also teaches children to trust their instincts ("the uh-oh feeling") and to face problems with help from adults they trust, rather than to "run away" (literally or figuratively). I have two kids in elementary school, and they both love this book. I highly recommend it!

I read this book to all of my kids and they're great - both by word and pictures - in helping children understand their feelings.
