Children can develop the ability to respond to their emotions in a healthy way through the practice of mindfulness. Andy Gets Angry is a great introduction for children to learn a fun and simple breath technique to respond to their emotions. The beautifully hand-painted illustrations provide the perfect landscape to tell the story of Andy and his journey in learning the wonderful skill of mindfulness. Share the book with your loved ones, and help us all plant the seed to be present!
Sometimes Andy gets angry when he loses. Sometimes he gets so angry in class when he doesn’t know the answer to a question.
Sometimes Andy gets angry when Bobby takes his toys … or when Sierra won’t stop singing!
Sometimes he gets angry when his parents raise their voices.
Andy Gets Angry by Author Mike Masse provides some easy techniques for children to use to channel their anger, and relieve their feelings of anxiety. To say this is a children’s book though, is a stretch. It’s more of a ‘discussion’ book for parents and children to share. Or, possibly, for educators to recommend when students are displaying anger in the classroom.
As a grandmother of five, I’ve definitely seen my share of childhood and adolescent anger. I appreciate the ease of the technique Mr. Masse teaches here, and enjoyed the lovely illustrations.
