This wonderful and engaging story gives children and caregivers a concrete practice for dealing with anger and other difficult emotions In Anhs Anger five year old Anh becomes enraged when his grandfather asks him to stop playing and come to the dinner table The grandfather helps Anh fully experience all stages of anger by suggesting that he go to his room and sit with his anger The story unfolds when Anh discovers what it means to sit with his anger He comes to know his anger in the first person as his anger comes to life in full color and personality Anh and his anger work through feelings together with humor and honesty to find a way to constructively release their thoughts and emotions and to reach resolve with Anhs grandfather The story is beautifully illustrated with handmade collages by New York artist and childrens book illustrator Christiane Kromer Each collage is a mix of paper acrylic and cardboard and found materials The materials reflect the connection between the characters and their environment and are indicative of the wide range of emotions that come together in the story Anhs Anger teaches children that it is okay to feel angry and shows the technique often used by child therapists of externalizing the emotion Through taking time to sit with his anger a young child is able to see his anger and talk to it and together they move through the journey of experiencing the different stages of anger until the feeling subsides and finally resolve Anhs Anger differs significantly from other books on anger resolution techniques in showing that the child is able to talk about what transpired and accept responsibility for hurtful things that he may have said or done The authors intention is to help parents understand that there is an alternative to time outs as a means of helping children to express themselves when feeling angry while providing children with a mechanism for internal dialogue during a time out or when sitting with their anger Through reading the story children will learn to acknowledge anger when it arises understand the cause of their anger and ultimately feel safe expressing themselves and accepting accountability for their actions when appropriate By learning these skills children will grow comfortable with them and carry them into adulthood with ease and confidence Anhs Anger is the first in a planned series of three books with these characters
