Seemor is a near sighted sea gull that has to wear glasses. His fellow sea gulls are constantly teasing him. His anger builds to the point of exploding, but instead he makes a choice to do something else with his angry energy. The illustrations of Seemor, his acquaintances and friends are delightful cartoon characters in striking black and white. A facilitator's information and discussion guide as well as an illustrated diagram of how anger works in the human brain follows Seemor's story. This is a book designed for children three through eight years of age.

(Nancy Walter) As you may note in my biography, the road I traveled to this point is heavy of heart. Now my steps have lightened from seeing young children use this tool successfully. A Kindergarten teacher, Ms. Michealson, and I successfully used "Seemor's Flight to Freedom" more than once in conjunction with other teaching aids to calm a classroom of hurting children using aggressive and abusive behavior. Tears come to my eyes when children get emotionally involved with Seemor's plight and dig deep inside to share their own stories. It is so exciting to watch the healing process.
