When Sophie Gets Angry-Really, Really Angry
By Molly Bang

Review by: Christina Mark

     When Sophie's sister takes away a toy that Sophie was playing with, 
Sophie gets angry. Boy, does she ever! She gets so angry she "roars a red, red roar". She runs out of the house and keeps running until she tires herself out and then she cries. Finally, Sophie climbs up a tree where she lets the sights and sounds of nature soothe and calm her.
     This is an excellent book for preschoolers. Oftentimes, young children have a hard time expressing feelings of anger and frustration. Young children can really identify with Sophie, having probably experienced similar situations with siblings or playmates. This book helps them to realize it is o.k. to get angry and, more importantly, shows them different ways of dealing with anger. The vivid illustrations also help convey various moods as the dominant colors shift from reds, purples, and oranges to shades of blue and green. 
     This book could be a very useful tool used in conjunction with a 
discussion about feelings. After reading this story, the parent or caregiver could ask their listeners how they would react in similar situations, thereby  helping to promote non-violent ways for children to express their anger.
