Author Ben Feller draws from his own personal experience as a dad to write his first book, Big Problems, Little Problems. This story beautifully captures the symbiotic relationship between a father and son. The father begins by sharing his wisdom with his younger son, Sam, when he gets upset. He helps his child find perspective when a problem seems too big to handle. When an unexpected mess delays the father’s busy morning, Sam reminds his dad of the difference between a big problem and a little problem.

This story is relatable, honest, and enjoyable for both parents and children. Children will learn how to stay calm when faced with life’s little difficulties and parents will be reminded that adults aren’t immune to feelings of frustration. The illustrations provided by Mercé López display the emotion felt by the father and son during their upsetting moments and times of clarity. Parents can use this book as an opportunity to connect with their children. Teachers can also share this story with their students while practicing calming strategies and learning the difference between big problems and little problems.
