Anh’s Anger reminds us that anger is part of all of us and that mindful sitting and breathing can help transform it. Both adults and children will benefit from learning how to change an unhappy situation into a joyful one.—Thich Nhat Hanh
Anh’s Anger is an engaging story that offers children and caregivers a mindfulness-based practice for dealing with anger and other difficult emotions.
Anh, a five-year-old boy, comes to know his anger when they dance, play, sit, and breathe together, actively creating a space for Anh to resolve an earlier conflict with his grandfather and understand the causes of a strong emotion.
The story is beautifully illustrated with handmade collages by award-winning children’s book illustrator Christiane Krömer. Each collage is a mix of paper, silk, cardboard, and found materials. Gail Silver is a former child advocate attorney, and the founder and director of Yoga Child, where she teaches yoga and meditation for children.

“Who are you?” asked Anh. “And how did you get into my room?”
“I’m your anger. You brought me here.”
The anger nodded.
“Did Grandfather see you come in? I’m not supposed to talk to strangers.”
“Don’t worry, Anh, I’m not a stranger. I’m the part of you that comes out when things don’t go your way. I’ve been around a lot lately.”
