This is a delightful book written in a compassionate way for children both young and old to understand their senses. It is filled with strategies for them to use so that they can feel in control - or their own normal. Every parent and person that works with children, both young and older would benefit from reading about Riley. This is a great addition to the Riley the Brave series.

In this new addition to the Riley the Brave series, Sinarski continues to help kids listen to and understand their bodies. By normalizing the outbursts and behaviours that often stem from unmet sensory needs, Riley makes it okay to ask grown-ups for help. He encourages kids to be open to trying new things, including therapy. This book helped my daughter make sense of the many BIG sensations she often feels - both inside and out. It gave our family a framework to create a plan to anticipate her sensory needs, with specific ways to help her feel safe and comfortable wherever she goes.
Dr, Laura S. Anderson, child and family therapist, Common Chord
As a psychologist who has worked with kids and families for decades and as the parent of a child with some distinct sensory needs this is a fantastic resource.This book is an excellent way to learn as parents, and help our children understand their bodies and feelings so that they can thrive.
