When the Anger Ogre Visits
Pub Date: Apr 7 2015
‘The Angry Ogre visits everybody’s lives, just remember to be patient whenever it arrives.’
This is the key message behind this short children’s ‘self help’ picture book about anger. Told in a simple but effective rhyme, it tries to explain to children that everyone gets angry and that we should not necessarily be automatically afraid of it. Only by facing our own anger, head on, and also viewing other people’s anger can we learn to disarm the negative feelings and return ourselves to a state of calmness. It is a message enhanced by the quirky illustrations by Ivette Salom’s .
A nice gateway into basic relaxation and anger management techniques.
