A too well-behaved little girl who boxes up her emotions finds her tipping point and creates a marvelous monster after an especially hard day.
Berta is tidy, never throws tantrums, and never cries. Whenever she feels overwhelmed, she just opens one of her boxes of emotions and shuts in her tears, fear, and anger. But what would happen if one day she lost control? Berta discovers that emotions should be felt and not locked up. Berta’s Boxes is a wonderful story about dealing with emotions and learning to understand and express your feelings.
