4 years & up. Cool Down and Work Through Anger by Cheri J. Meiners. It's never too early to teach children to recognize feelings of anger, express them, and build skills for coping with anger in appropriate ways. Children learn that it is okay to feel angry, but it is not okay to hurt anyone with actions or words. This book helps children discover concrete skills for working through anger: self-calming, thinking, getting help from a trusted person, talking and listening, apologizing, being patient, and viewing others positively. Paperback. 40 pages.
