Children's LiteratureAnger is often not understood. This simply stated book of 24 pages with large engaging photos of angry people, adults and children, opens with some grounding statements. "When people are mad at each other, they may fight. When 2 countries are angry at each other, they may go to war. Too much anger can hurt people." Concepts of real emotions and disappointments are briefly shown through behaviors. How your body changes when you are angry is portrayed through symptoms like breathing fast, rashes or stomachaches. The fact that everyone gets angry and there are ways to control this are emphasized, like breathing deeply and counting to 10, or seeking positive images and talking it out. Draw pictures, write a story or ride your bike. Finally, an activity with 3 kids and 3 grownups is suggested around the question, "If your friend broke your favorite toy, what would you do?" There is a short list of Words to Know, a Read More and Explore the Web list and a brief Index. Subtitled, "My Feelings," this resource is wonderful in its brevity and clarity to read to an upset child or group to evoke discussion and comprehension of one of our strongest emotions. 2005, Creative Education/The Creative Company, Ages 8 up.
