Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Cool Down and Work Through Anger is an excellent book for helping children understand this unpleasant but normal emotion. The book takes an evidence-based approach which is recommended in the early childhood field. When their teacher reads this book, children will learn that feeling angry is perfectly normal but that hurting somebody because you are angry is not acceptable. The book gives very helpful strategies for helping children deal with anger.”
—Marian Marion, Ph.D., Professor, Early Childhood Education, Governors State University

“A delightful addition to the series. I particularly like the focus on what kids can do to handle their anger more constructively, rather than focusing on what not to do. . . . Will appeal to kids as well as those who work with them.”
—James J. Crist, Ph.D., author of What to Do When You’re Scared and Worried and Mad

Children's Literature - Christine Cassello
The boy in this story likes to have things under control. He has a made up bed and neat bedroom. His toys are all arranged on shelves of a bookcase. But, sometimes things do not go his way. Other children will not let him play with them or share a toy. One boy pushes in front of him when he is in line at the water fountain. Those things make him angry. He knows when he is getting angry. His face turns red, his muscles tense, and his heart beats faster. He breathes heavier and feels like he is going to explode. He knows that if he does fight, kick or use angry words it will hurt both the other child and himself. He thinks of ways to calm down, like counting to ten, taking deep breaths, going to a quiet place, drawing or making something. He can read, sing, play outside or join other people. He thinks of ways to solve his problems and talks to people he can trust, like a parent or teacher. Then, he goes to the children and tells them how he felt about what they did. He listens to them, and he forgives them. He recognizes that everyone make mistakes. An excellent book for home use or classroom instruction, the illustrations are brightly colored, full page and detailed, so even a non-reader can tell what is happening in the picture and how the children are feeling. It part of a "Learning to Get Along" series, and in the back are ways to reinforce the ideas presented, including; questions, games and activities. Reviewer: Christine Cassello

    I love this book!

    I read this book with my Kindergarten to 3rd grade students. I teach special education- most of my students have high functioning autism. It is a great jumping off point to work on calming strategies. They love this book. I just bought it for my 6 year old nephew.

    Useful language for kids

    The book isn't a great story, but my 3 and 4 year olds both like reading it and talking about when they are angry and how they calm down (or don't calm down). If your kids like books, this is a useful way to talk about feelings and behavior.
