I use this book in groups in grades 2 and 3 to understand disappointment and how to handle it.  Although many students can explain disappointment with an example, it is harder for many to actually come up with the right thoughts and actions to cope with this unpleasant feeling.  Many group members connected it to disappointment about gifts for a special occasion or not getting to see or do what they want for the winter break.  I made a simple handout with the title Disappointment and the books refrain "You get wheat you get and you don't throw a fit!"  They each wrote about and drew themselves handling disappointment appropriately. Hopefully, some of the students will remember the session over the upcoming break.
