"When little people are overwhelmed by big emotions, it's our job to share our calm, not to join their chaos." —L.R. Knost

This soothing board book by child psychologist, professor and author Dr. Jillian Roberts was written to remind us that the little people in our lives need us to be their calm. To recognize their big feelings, teach them how to honor them and let them go. A valuable tool to help young ones learn to co-regulate, Calm is just as much for babies as it is the adults in their lives.

About the author

Editorial Reviews

“Crisp, heartwarming photos in warm tones that depict racially diverse caregivers holding and comforting tots.”

Kirkus Reviews

“An essential read for caregivers…A lesson of responsive parenting that would serve as a gentle reminder to parents on the good and also exhausting, over-stimulating caregiving days as well. Highly Recommended.”
