I am a psychotherapist and mother and find Angry Octopus indispensable. It does a wonderful job of guiding children and adults through a progressive relaxation exercise as well as conveying that angry feelings can be managed. It is clear, and the illustrations are inviting and helpful. For adults, it teaches relaxation skills in a down-to earth and non-intimidating fashion. --Rhonda Bryhn, MSW
Managing anger is an essential part of life. The Angry Octopus teaches children how to be in charge of the emotion called anger and by using their breath, shifting to a serene and calm space. --Marilyn Powers, Vice President The I Am Foundation
With all the demands of busy young lives that children face today, how nice that an octopus and a friendly sea child can model appropriate anger management in a fun, easy and peaceful method. --Lynne Goldman, Johannesen, Elementary School
The first time I read this book to my children, they both engaged in the progressive muscle relaxation without any prompting from me. Several days later, my six year old spontaneously talked about how he could manage his anger by doing what the octopus did. A must have for anyone with children or anyone who works with children. --Dr. L. Teegarden, Clinical Psychologist
What a great book the Angry Octopus is! My children and I have been reading it every night before going to bed. I have downloaded a digital version of the book and my kids enjoy reading it on my laptop. They make comments about the beautiful illustrations present in the book. The most valuable thing for me is that it teaches kids that it is OK to get angry sometimes but there are also appropriate and healthy ways to deal with anger. And the book definitely teaches us how to manage our anger in a healthy way. I am planning to buy more books written by Lori Lite as she addresses stress management is a professional manner that is also very enjoyable from a child perspective. Thanks, Lori! --Christina V.

The book is long, half of it tells you how to tense and relax each part of your body, my son was not following the steps although he listened to the whole story twice.
I found it a bit boring although it is a cute concept.
Update: my son seems to like the book, he doesn't really follow the steps but he listens ...
Update of the update: this book does seem to relax my son. He fe asleep twice while I was reading this book although he doesn't really follow the relation steps the repetition seems to work, he does complain that is a long book but I read it anyway :)
It's a bit expensive for a paperback book, but definitely worth the money.
