When Sophie Gets Angry - Really, Really, Angry... by Molly Bang
Preschoolers can get very angry, and this book helps them see that they are not alone in how they feel. After reading the story, get your preschooler talking about anger and discuss some of the best ways to deal with it. For example, you can discuss what behavior is acceptable when they are upset (crying) and what is not acceptable (hitting). Anger is just one emotion preschoolers are learning to control, and this book is just what you need to get the conversation started.
