A cute book that teaches kids alternate ways to take out their frustrations, so that they will not hurt anyone or anything.

I love the healthy boundaries this book sets. I love how it shows that anger is natural, that anger doesn't last, and that we have the choice to do healthy things instead of hurtful things when we are angry. ...more

This is the first book my three-year-old daughter ever connected with on an emotional level. She wanted to read it four times when we first checked it out at local story hour program.

This one is okay; not one of her better lift-the-flap books. It takes the modern child-rearing line that you can never just tell a kid something is wrong; you must always give them alternatives: don't hit your brother, hit a drum! My daughter did not enjoy this quite as much as the other books in this series, but she did enjoy it. ...more

It's a bright book. Now my son is thinking of alternative ways to express his anger. Great work.

Even for very young kids it is important to educate some feelings and how to relieve anger. I think it is a good book for it.
