Praise for EEPWORM's Emotional Day
"Author Corinne Goyette gives back to everyone who believes in her. As Corinne gently and lovingly demonstrates, Big Emotions don't have to overwhelm us. Big Emotions can inform and remind us we have choices. We can love or we can hurt. In choosing love, Eepworm heals ruptures within Eepworm and with his friend, Blue. Each of us can embrace our troubles and transform those troubles into compassion. Corinne lovingly shares hard-won tools she has learned as an otherwise able person."

l"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!"

"Eepworm's Emotional Day is a fun, brightly colored educational read. It shows students how emotions work and the consequences they can have if displayed a certain way."
"I loved how simple this book was. It's easy for the younger children to follow along. The pages were beautifully illustrated. As a substitute teacher, I recommend this book for each classroom."

"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!"
"I can honestly say the book is good for several reasons: The content is based on social/emotional learning - very much needed these days, even before COVID-19. The beginning page, For Parents and Teachers is excellent - Emotions vocabulary is very much needed and nicely presented. Illustrations are excellent - Colors are connected to emotions and are calm colors. Rhyming lends to building a dialogue about rhyming and facilitates phonemic awareness. The story ends with forgiveness...that can be built upon as well."

"I love the book, especially the illustrations - they are so beautiful!. The story is easy to follow, filled with realistic emotions and reactions. I really like your insert at the beginning where you guide the adult on how to best use the book to point out and discuss the various emotions expressed throughout the story. Great job Corinne!"
