How do you deal with problems? Find out in this bold, humorous, and surprisingly insightful picture book that personifies problems as creatures, and skillfully teaches readers (big and small!) how to handle one when it appears. Have you ever met a problem? They come in all shapes and sizes, and can pop up at the most inconvenient times. But you should know some things about problems that will help you make them disappear...

This picture book's original take on managing emotions, and emphasis on communication, will help little ones and grown-ups alike naviagate their peskiest problems. THE PROBLEM WITH PROBLEMS is filled with social-emotional learning-based advice for every kind of situation, wrapped lovingly in the lyrical prose of award-winning children's poet Rachel Rooney.
