Pause Power is a great tool for teaching impulse control and pro-social behaviors. The illustrations are fun, match the story and help explain what happens when we let someone else be in charge of our feelings. I think the author does a great job of teaching kids how to use Pause Power (breathing and counting) to calm down and make good choices. I just want to say thank you and i will watch for additonal books from this author!
This is a great story to encourage emotional self regulation. We all have buttons and when they are pushed we need to realize this and remedy it before we explode. Cute characters and plot line. My kiddo liked it 🖒
As a Registered Play Therapist I am always looking for books I can use to help kids improve their social skills. Pause Power is a cleverly written book that can be used with children (and adults) of all ages. Anyone who works with kids will want this book for their office library. School Counselors, Social Workers and Educators alike will find this book essential for helping kids calm down. Parents can also use this book to help their child improve emotional regulation abilities. I am looking forward to more books by Jen Law!!

This book is a absolute MUST have in the classroom. Helping students learn the skills of self-regulation and emotional control are essential in the development of social and emotional learning. Kids can relate to Gabe and he struggles to remain calm and learns just how to identify and manage his triggers.
I think this was written for kids in elementary school. Preschool children, unless exceptionally bright, may not grasp the metaphor cleverly used.
The lesson of this story has the potential to lessen so much trouble in the world. I find myself remembering (and imitating) the look of calm on Gabe's face at end of the story when I'm annoyed with traffic.
I look forward to reading more books by Jennifer Law. She has a knack for teaching important skills in a fun way.
