Children can develop the ability to respond to their emotions in a healthy way through the practice of mindfulness. Andy Gets Angry is a great introduction for children to learn a fun and simple breath technique to respond to their emotions. The beautifully hand-painted illustrations provide the perfect landscape to tell the story of Andy and his journey in learning the wonderful skill of mindfulness. Share the book with your loved ones and help us all plant the seed to be present!
A great book for teaching children to control anger. We are all exposed to triggers that make us mad now & then and the younger we learn how to control our reaction, the better. This is a perfect book for a middle grade reader, maybe even 4th or 5th grade and up. It’s also a great book to read together with younger children.
There are cute illustrations on each page and the prose is broken up into small sections making this easier for a child to read. I hope parents will utilize this to teach discipline and I hope Mike Masse will write more books like this.
