I Didn’t Cause that Frown is a tool to help children and adults understand the complexities of someone’s expressions; they may think they know what is being communicated, those cues from others are often not quite so clear.

This book takes one through an ordinary school day, and guides the reader to learn how to respond to frowny, angry and sad faces with a clearer understanding of their peers’ expressions. This interesting school day reveals to the reader that although your friend has a frown, or a sad face, that doesn’t necessarily mean it has anything to do with you.
