Go! Go! Go! Stop! meets Grumpy Monkey in this adorable story of a moody dump truck and her mindful tools for battling a bad mood.

When Little Dump Truck is happy, the whole construction crew knows it. When she isn't happy, she becomes Little GRUMP Truck. She can't contain her mood--and soon it starts spreading to the rest of the trucks. When she closes her eyes to get away from her grumpies, she discovers that taking a quiet moment away from  her troubles can shift her bad mood into reverse. For now...

This fun, accessible story helps kids understand how to use meditation and mindfulness when they feel overwhelmed or angry, and is a useful tool for any parent hoping to try a new approach to treating tantrums.

"Should appeal to all the little grump trucks hauling their feelings about."--Kirkus
