Resource Description

When an octopus wakes up to find that his seashell rock garden has been destroyed by lobsters passing by he gets very upset and shoots black ink in anger, but then he feels frustrated, out of control, and not the boss of his body. A sea child swims by and stops to help by teaching the octopus to control his anger and regain control of himself through breathing and relaxation exercises and the octopus discovers that being calm also helps him to think clearly. This colourful and descriptive picture book can be used as a read-aloud or part of a calm-down routine to help primary students learn how to become calm, control their anger, develop self-control, and relax.
