Although this book was written from the heart based on personal experiences, it is relevant to teaching psychological concepts as cognitive restructuring. It provides an avenue for youth through adults to conceptually understand, through the engaging rhymes and images of the tanglelows, the impact negative thoughts have on well-being. The tanglelows provide representation of the various thoughts abound and begins to explain how thoughts affect emotions, core tenets of cognitive-behavioral therapy. Not only is this book a great family read as the story line applies to all and it stimulates rich discussion, but its also a useful tool for psychologists to use in treatment as well!

Once again, a young author with great creativity and passion, Greg McGoon writes a colorful tale of truth and fantasy. The Tramples and Trembles characters may be of the imagination but their roles and function are of truth. The tanglelows once again teach about how our mind and emotions work together, sometimes helping and sometimes hurting us. This fun rhyming story has much wisdom and lessons to be learned about the role and need to manage our emotions and take control of our own mental states.  This story helps all ages, those who have suffered emotional angst and those who have not, learn how to experience, embrace and then become empowered from emotions.  Bravo!
