Peter Panda Melts Down!

by Artie Bennett , illustrated by John Nez

Peter Panda Pgs Hi Res 1



Every kid has them, and every parent, or kid-caretaker, has had to deal with them - those meltdown-tantrum-pitching-a-fit moments! Peter Panda has them - when it's time to leave the playground, when some other child has the book he wants, when Mama insists he eat some broccoli. When this happens: Uh-oh. Here it comes. Here comes that frown. Peter Panda melts dowwwnnn! Presented with humor and understanding, Artie Bennett's bright and sprightly story offers a way for children to recognize their own behaviors. Parents and kids can talk about what they see on the pages and gain some insight on how to handle such incidents - including when Mama Panda has a little meltdown of her own!
