The premise of the book is that anger is okay and natural, and you do not need to feel ashamed or scared when you are angry. You can talk about your anger, and try to physically calm your body, but you cannot be abusive and hurt yourself, others, or property.

If you are a parent hoping to help a child with anger issues, this is probably not the best book for you. It is basically a series of lesson plans designed for teachers/counselors to use when teaching students about anger and constructive ways to manage their anger.

OTOH, I do plan to adapt a few of the lessons for my family. There are a few useful stories and worksheets that could reinforce some of the messages I am trying to get through to my children, such as: using "cold water" words to diffuse someone else's anger; figuring out "what lit the fuse" for an outburst of anger; slowly escalating your words "using your muscles" to explain when someone is bothering you, rather than exploding all at once; and coming up with "safe ways" to express anger, among others.

A Volcano in My Tummy: Helping Children to Handle Anger

While this book does have some universal information that is useful, the primary objective seems to be aimed at class room environment for 6 to 10 year olds. I ordered this book when my boy was 3.5. So I couldn't make use of the lessons and activities. When my son gets a bit older it might be helpful even just at home. I read the book and it helped me think about my own anger and maybe gave me some ammo for dealing with his anger. But a better book I found was "What to do when your temper flares". That book gave us images of anger that were tangible. For example it likened allowing anger to run rampant is like driving a car. You have to learn how to drive and you have to learn how to handle anger. Even tho my boy is too young to drive he understood the concept immediately. This other book also says: It isn't what happens that makes you mad it's what you THINK about what happened that determines how you feel.

In a group setting the lessons would be combined with class discussions but they don't lend themselves well to story time reading material. It isn't a bad book it just doesn't suit our needs. If you are a teacher or home schooler this might be just the thing.

As a play therapist, I needed something to help me work effectively with angry children. It was referred to me by a co-worker so I ordered it. The price was right and the contents was absolutely just what I wanted, needed, and oh so glad I have it. The lessons are short, easy to use with children, and the activities keep the children engaged in therapy. I love it. Amazing how quick the book shipped, it was brand new, packed really well,and this is how shopping should be.

I purchased this book when I got a divorce. I knew it would be hard on my 5 year old and I wanted to give her as much support as I possibly could. This book was amazing in helping my daughter work thru issues. I am happy to say that she is fairly well adjusted and give this book partial credit. She is now 8 and this books still sits on her bookshelf for whenever she may need it.

children that I worked with had difficulties understanding the concept of the book, thus, were unable to display ability to implement book message during their daily activities.
One of the most user friendly books I've ever purchased. The content is awesome. This book is great if you're a counsellor/social Worker/Teacher/Parent
