    No Fits, Nilson! By Zachariah OHora. Nilson is a big, green, watch-wearing gorilla who has a bit of a temper. Amelia is Nilson’s friend. Sometimes Amelia has a bit of a temper too. Together, along with some gentle coaching from Amelia’s mom, they use the “banana ice cream gorilla eyelock” to help keep each other calm through the day-to-day experiences that can test even the happiest gorilla’s disposition. Preschooler and toddler approved! From Brownsburg Public Library.

    No Fits, Nilson! by Zachariah OHora. Amelia must continually remind her gorilla friend, Nilson, not to have fits, especially when they are running errands with her mother, but sometimes Amelia stomps and growls, too.

    "Nilson and Amelia do everything together. But if one little thing goes wrong, Nilson throws the biggest, most house shaking-est fit ever! Amelia helps Nilson control his gorilla-sized temper by promising him banana ice cream and letting him play with her froggy coin purse. But, sometimes, Amelia needs to be calmed down, too. Inspired by Ohora's own "negotiations" with his two sons, No Fits, Nilson! is a hilarious preschool pick for kids and parents navigating the treacherous tantrum phase."
