In , I highlighted a book called The Bad Mood by Moritz Petz. It is a children’s book that explores the effect our moods can have on others and our relationships with them. Today I highlight another children’s book, one that I feel addresses the emotion of anger in a profound way: Molly Bang’s When Sophie Gets Angry, Really, Really Angry….

When Sophie Gets Angry – Really, Really Angry by Molly Bang is an excellent book for helping children to understand appropriate ways to handle anger, and a book that is a must in any pre-K or kindergarten teacher’s room. Sophie is a very angry girl who becomes explosive when her sister takes a toy from her. She expresses her anger by throwing a temper tantrum and then runs away. After she can run no more she does other things to handle her anger like crying, enjoying nature, finding a quite place, and then returning home. The progression of the book gives many opportunities to ask students if they have ever done this when they were angry, and if it was the right or wrong thing to do. After the book is over you can go over good ways to handle anger. Here are a few ideas to use with this book!
