Anh's Anger, $16.95
"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
Ahn'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.
Author Gail Silver is a former Child Advocate Attorney, and the founder and director of Yoga Child, where she teaches yoga classes, and meditation for children.
The story is beautifully illustrated with handmade collages by New York artist and award-winning children's book illustrator Christiane Krömer. Each collage is a mix of paper, silk, cardboard, and found materials.
ISBN: 978-1-888375-94-7, Hardcover, 40 pages.
"One of the best books we've ever seen on the issue of dealing with anger...Getting angry is normal. The question is how do you deal with your anger. In this incredibly story, Anh gets really angry and gets sent to his room to "sit with" his anger. Anh not only sits with his anger, he chats, dances, and plays with his anger. This story is simply amazing, healthy, beautiful..... a gem." —ReachandTeach.com
