Editorial Reviews

Review

A Volcano in My Tummy presents a clear and effective approach to helping children and adults alike understand and deal constructively with children's anger. The book offers engaging, well-organized activities which help to overcome the fear of children's anger which many adult care-givers experience, and distinguishes between anger the feeling, and violence the behavior. Primarily created for ages 6 to thirteen, it is accessible for use in class or at home.

I use the activities and concepts in this book all of the time! As a school social worker and child therapist, I find this book to be invaluable. It has engaged all types of children and can work well in individual sessions as well as groups. Although it is intended for school age children; I have used some of the "lessons" for preschool children effectively.

It was not what I thought. I thought it was a book to read to kids, instead it is a WONDERFUL workbook with ideas, activities, etc. Definately for teachers but very useful even for this grandma!

I am an Elementary School Counselor. I got this book to help me put together small groups for some of my students. The book is wonderful. It is full of great and effective ideas. I bought many resources in the past, and this is by far the best one to help children understand and work through anger.

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.

I did my social work internship at an elementary school and used this book for the basis of my group work within the school. It was fantastic. There are lots of activities that you can expand upon and mix with your own ideas to use with the kids.
My only difficulty was that I was a school where most of the children had to have many concepts and words explained to them, as they are just not exposed to the type of thinking involved with the activities. Made the book that much more an important tool.

I am a developmental and behavioral pediatrician, who has worked with children for many years on issues of emotional control. I have training in hypnosis to help children learn to envision their emotions, the behaviors of their emotions, and how to become the boss of their emotions. I have found this book to be an excellent adjunct to helping them with the idea of visualization of how anger and axiety affect them.

I really feel that people working with children exhibiting anger, should review this book to understand how anxiety might look depending on the child. Research has shown that many angry children (and adults) reach that behavior from anxiety that keeps building up until they need to address it some way.
