Praise for EEPWORM's Emotional Day
"Every parent or teacher can relate to a fun time with children turning sour when the fun needs to end. Corinne Goyette's book lets a child enter into the adorable Eepworm's super exciting day of fun with a friend, only to have strong negative emotions almost ruin the day! Helpful tips within the book allow your child or student to stop, take a break and handle emotions successfully. A must have on any teacher, parent or school counselor's shelf."
- Lisa Stuckey, M.Ed.
"What a lovely find this was! The story is simple and sweet. It was a wonderful way to open up a conversation with my daughter, who also has difficulty with the size and scope of her emotions when it comes time for the fun to end. We used her eepworm to talk about her feelings and how they can feel overwhelming, and to demonstrate how easy it is to lash out when we don't know what else to do. It led to an interesting conversation - I doubt all of our challenges with ending playdates and big emotions are resolved, obviously, but it was a great start!"

"I had heard of eepworms but until recently I had never met one. Lately I had the pleasure of meeting a yellow eepworm and the opportunity to read both My Friend Eepworm and Eepworm's Emotional Day.
The author has very helpfully included a section at the beginning for parents and teachers -- Things to Discuss as You Read. So if you're not a natural at discussions about emotions, the tips presented here should start the ball rolling.
The watercolor illustrations by Goyette are charming and accessible, and add interest and color to the story. The format of the pages is varied and interesting -- on some pages there are several smaller illustrations, while others feature double-page spreads. Both books are charming, and thank you for the eepworm friend!"
