What do you do with a problem? Especially one that follows you around and doesn't seem to be going away? Do you worry about it? Ignore it? Do you run and hide from it?

This is the story of a persistent problem and the child who isn't so sure what to make of it. The longer the problem is avoided, the bigger it seems to get. But when the child finally musters up the courage to face it, the problem turns out to be something quite different than it appeared.

This is a story for anyone, at any age, who has ever had a problem that they wished would go away. It's a story to inspire you to look closely at that problem and to find out why it's here. Because you might discover something amazing about your problem… and yourself.

What are problems for? They challenge us, shape us, push us, and help us to discover just how strong and brave and capable we really are. Even though we don't always want them, problems have a way of bringing unexpected gifts.

So, what will you do with your problem? Now that's up to you.

We absolutely love this series. What Do You Do With A Problem is another fabulous picture book for readers of all ages. This book is perfect for young readers who are learning to navigate their own little worlds. With richly detailed illustrations, and engaging story, What Do You Do With A Problem, teaches it's readers, in an engaging way, how to face a problem and tackle it. 

My favorite quote from this book is: "Every problem has an opportunity for something good. You just have to look for it." 

While this book is geared towards young kids, this book is great for all readers. It tells the story of what you'll feel the first time you do have a problem, and while that problem might be scary, when you have the courage to face it, you'll discover your problem may not be what you first thought. This is definitely a must read, with great teaching techniques. This is one book we'd recommend picking up.

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
