A good book for siblings of difficult children

Siblings of difficult children grow up with quite a bit of stress. This excellent book can sibs understand that anger and aggression may have roots in anxiety and sadness: (review is mine) Peace And Pancakes: Books: Anne M. Picard

...I'm told this book was self-published, the first-time author couldn't find a publisher. We live in an odd world, this is a terrific work. Publication should have been a no-brainer.

The book tells the story of an angry giant who terrorizes the forest. A young dragon learns the lessons of patience, listening, and seeing with the heart. Finally he confronts the giant, and wins the day with wisdom and pancakes.

The illustrations are excellent, the book comes with a CD as well, suitable for storing on an iPod.
