The Outlook Book teaches cognitive behavioral strategies to children in language that they can understand. The book is illustrated with photographs, taken by the author, of a wild squirrel (named MartyLou) living in her backyard. These images often depict MartyLou doing human activities and are quite entertaining! Children will enjoy looking at the pictures as they learn how to be in control of their behavior so that they can get along better with others. MartyLou encourages them to steer clear of stinking thinking and suggests things they can do to help them get out of a bad mood. After reading this book, MartyLou will become your child's cheerleader, teacher, and new friend.
