Buddy is an ordinary kid who sometimes erupts like a volcano! Can he learn new ways to manage his anger and frustration?

Sometimes when I get mad . . . Bubble . . . Boil . . . Erupt!

Most of the time, Buddy is a regular kid. He has ups and downs. But when things don't go his way, he can feel the magma bubble and boil inside of him until he erupts like a volcano. Fortunately, he knows a few ways to return to feeling as calm and cool as igneous rock.

Sometimes I Am Hot Lava shows kids like Buddy how to manage feelings of anger and frustration through mindful breathing techniques. Backmatter teaches readers about anger and helps us identify what we're feeling, why we're feeling it, and what we can do about it.
