What to Do When it's Not Fair A Kid's Guide to Handling Envy and Jealousy by Jacqueline B. Toner, Clare A. B. Freeland

Have you ever noticed how pirates use a spyglass to focus in on other ships or land in the distance? While they focus in on small things in the distance, they miss seeing other things around them. Sometimes they miss having fun. Sometimes they miss the beautiful treasure they already have! Just like a pirate using a spyglass, kids may focus in on one thing that they want, and not notice all the good things they already have. If you're a kid who thinks it's not fair, this book is for you! What to Do When It's Not Fair guides children and their parents through the difficult emotions of envy and jealousy using strategies and techniques based on cognitive-behavioural principles. This interactive self-help book is the complete resource for educating, motivating, and empowering children to cope with envy - so they can sail the high seas with pleasure!
