Editorial Reviews

Review

"Silver and Krömer pair their considerable talents to create a successful second title in the Anh's Anger series. Silver's dialogue-driven text is likely to provoke meaningful discussions about dealing with disappointment and controlling tempers. Preschoolers and primary-grade students will appreciate Krömer's visual feast of pencil, paint and tactile collage elements used to vividly illustrate Anh's story. Sure to fill a niche for those tackling potentially thorny social situations, this straightforward and enlightened approach will appeal to many."—Kirkus Review

"This offbeat story makes the potentially cerebral topic of dealing appropriately with anger simple and delightfully visual. Krömer’s predominantly green palette in collages combined with brush and pencil drawings is almost contagiously soothing, and makes the red of Anger visually exclamatory. In their second collaboration, Silver and Krömer (Anh’s Anger) have developed a winning series."—Publishers Weekly

"My lessons on keeping your cool in school just got a whole lot better. This is the sequel to Ahn's Anger and it is an ESSENTIAL resource...As a school counselor, I rely on books like this to help teach calming down techniques kids will actually use...I am thrilled to share such a healing book with our students, especially those who are stuck in constant anger. Parents, teachers, and counselors will appreciate having this on their shelf when they need to teach or reteach this important skill."—Books That Heal Kids

I lead a children's group at a local Zen Center. Each session we read a different book. I have read many, if not most, of the Zen and Buddhist books for children. In my opinion, the two Anh's Anger books are the best. They are concisely written, age-appropriate, and beautifully illustrated. Mostly important present a simple, solid teaching that kids can use. So often in Western culture, anger is viewed as an enemy, something we have to suppress or conquer. In Steps and Stones, Anger is not an enemy, but a companion to be acknowledged, accepted, and handled skilfully. Being a friend to Anger does not, however, mean always doing what Anger wants to do! The children in the group love the Anh books. I like Anh's Anger slightly better than Steps and Stones, but I rate both 5 stars.

My school counseling lessons on keeping your cool in school just got a whole lot better. This is the sequel to Anh's Anger and it is an ESSENTIAL resource. Kids are managing their emotions all day long. But for certain kids, they have to work extra hard at managing their feelings of anger. As a school counselor, I rely on books like this to help teach calming down techniques kids will actually use.

Steps and Stones focuses on teaching children to cool off through breathing, counting and walking. Ahn's anger walks slowly with him as they do this exercise together. Slowly Ahn is able to work through the feeling and regain his balance. At my school, we teach kids to take a break when they are about to lose their cool. But just exactly what should they be doing during this break? Breathing, counting, and taking a walk should be a part of this routine. In fact, kids can even read this story when they are trying to get rid of anger.

I am thrilled to share such a healing book with our students, especially those who are stuck in constant anger. Parents, teachers, and counselors will appreciate having this on their shelf when they need to teach or reteach this important skill.

What a fantastic book! My son just turned 5 years old and he regularly pulls this book off his shelf for me to read to him. Like all people, my son sometimes struggles with his anger and this book has actually helped with that. The idea of taking time to breath has been very helpful and I think it made him feel better to see the boy in this book crying when he felt mad/sad. My son will sometimes say his anger monster is visiting him and we'll breath and pretend to blow it away. How wonderful for children to know it's okay to be angry and also to have the tools to feel in control of what can be a very scary emotion. Love this book!

Being a teacher of young children and children's yoga, I have utilized this book in my classes. Children are mesmerized by the artwork, drawing them into the story. The story concept of being sad and mad relates to something that even the youngest can understand. The idea of taking a breath and stepping back from these emotions to see them for what they are is presented in a wonderful context. I recommend Gail's book to everyone that has children in their lives.
