Use this playful, read-along story to teach that anger as a natural and manageable part of life. "The Anger Ogre visits everybody's lives, just remember to be patient whenever it arrives." When the Anger Ogre Visits gives children symbolic and concrete guidance about how to deal with anger as a natural part of their inner lives. Rather than squelching anger or pushing it away, the book invites children to sit with and observe anger, removing its overwhelming aspects. This playfully illustrated story, written in memorable rhyme, centers on discovering and using internal resources and portrays anger as manageable.
