A Children's Book About Dealing with Anger

By Brian Moses
Illustrated by Mike Gordon

  • Paperback
  • £6.99

Help young children to explore their anger in this dinotastic story about feelings.

Anna Angrysaurus is a very angry dinosaur. She gets cross when her brother beats her at games, or when she can't watch what she wants on television. She roars, howls and stamps her feet. Will she ever be able to keep calm?

Written by Brian Moses, this funny picture book explores different things that might make young children frustrated at home or at school, such as sibling jealousy, not being allowed to do what they like, or even feeling grumpy for no reason at all. Different ways of dealing with anger and avoiding tantrums are then set out.

The clever and funny illustrations, by internationally renowned illustrator, Mike Gordon, bring a light touch to these stories, helping children to learn about and manage their emotions in a fun and lighthearted way.

Excellent notes for parents and teachers at the back of these books show how to approach these issues with children.
