Despite the front cover, Feeling Angry! actually surprises you. The boy on the front cover is usually the calm kid and helps others deal with their anger appropriately, starting with his dad. Then he helps his mom with his younger sister who is about to lose her temper as well. But, he doesn’t just help find solutions at home; he also takes this to school and helps his friends in two different situations. The last situation at home is with him right when its time for bed and his mom wants him to come off the tablet (a known situation to probably most of us parents), he loses his own temper and becomes angry. The story ends with his family giving him his own advice that he used to help others in their situations with anger that day. At the end, he becomes happy again, but doesn’t want to sleep. Feeling Angry! is a great way to explain to kids how to deal with anger appropriately and how to be the peacemaker when others around them are angry as well. I would definitely recommend this book for any parent who deals with an angry child, even if it is just sometimes.
This book is great for the Kindergarten age to about 3rd or 4th grade. The concepts younger children may not understand.
