How to Take the Grrrr Out of Anger by Elizabeth Verdick, Marjorie Lisovskis

Kids need help learning how to manage their anger. Blending solid information and sound advice with humor and lively illustrations, these anger-management tips guide kids to understand that anger is normal and to learn they can express it in healthy ways. The book 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.
This revised edition addresses children’s exposure to increased societal violence and includes discussion and examples of anger related to texting and social media. Young readers learn that cruelty and violence are not acceptable and there are 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 when they need more support.

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.

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.
