  • When Sophie Gets Angry- Really, Really Angry...

    by Molly Bang Year Published: 1999
    "When Sophie gets angry, she runs out and climbs her favorite tree. Different people handle anger in different ways. What do you do when you get angry"?
     
    This is a great book to read with young children to help them explore the feeling of anger. Notice the color changes within the illustrations as you observe Sophie experience anger as a response to an argument with her sister and then as she finds a healthy way to calm down. This book helps to validate children's angry feelings when they experience them.
