Overview

Anger is a part of life. We can’t avoid it, we shouldn’t stuff it, and we can’t make it go away.

Kids need help learning how to manage their anger. This book speaks directly to them and offers strategies they can start using immediately.

Blending solid information and sound advice with jokes and funny cartoons, it guides kids to understand that anger is normal and can be expressed in many ways—some healthy, some not.

It teaches them how to recognize anger in themselves and others, how to handle situations and emotions (loneliness, guilt, frustration, fear) that lead to or mask anger, and how to deal with the anger they feel.

Young readers learn that violence is not acceptable and there are better, safer, more positive ways to resolve conflicts.

They also discover what to do when people around them are angry, how to get help, and how to locate other resources (books, hotlines, school groups) when they need more support.

Children's Literature
This amazing little book is designed to help kids handle anger in their lives. As the book reassures, everyone gets angry. Handling that anger so that it does not stay with you for life is what this advice is all about. Handling anger in proper ways is healthy, both mentally and physically. The book is divided into ten short chapters which include: How it Feels to be Angry, The Different Faces of Anger, Five Steps to Taming That Temper, and Grrrreat Ways to Keep Your Cool. Illustrated with amusing cartoons, the text is minimal and is written in a positive, chatty tone. Chapters often include 5 or 10 ways to do this or that, such as how to relax or steps to take to solve anger problems. There is a message for parents and teachers on what to do to help angry kids as well as additional resources for kids, parents and teachers. A great idea to have this one on hand in the classroom! 2003, Free Spirit Publishing,

    A great book for schools-

    I really enjoy this book. As a school counselor I run anger groups at the elementary school level and through out the group we read this book together. It is a fun book to read to children that isn't too heavy. It has great, practical suggestions in a fun way for times when you are angry. It is a great tool to use when teaching anger management skills and it is a bit funny so that the students don't feel like they are studying. If you have a child or a student with anger management issues, this is the book for you. A great tool and resource.

    Highly Recommended

    Great book to teach anger management on a child's level of understanding. I work with children from 3yrs old to 17 yrs old, and this book actually covers that age range, with some great techniques and pictures for interaction and comprehension.
