Great book! Nov 16, 2008
This is a wonderful book. My 5-year old loves it. It really helps to show children how there words effect others.
Excellent story about the impact of anger Jul 10, 2008
Andrew's Angry Words is a fabulous story. It explains in simple terms the effect of angry words on others. I highly recommend it!
Old-fashioned storytale with a valuable lesson to be learned! Sep 27, 2005
This is a great storytale with a valuable lesson to be learned in regards to how our negative actions can cause a domino-effect of negative reactions in others. I bought this book for my five-year-old who started to say "angry words" after beginning Kindergarten. Not only has this book helped us in discussing "angry words" and why they are never appropriate, but we have had fun in the process reading this together! I enjoy the storytelling aspects of this book (lots of great opportunities to creat different voices with all of the interesting characters, i.e. poet, dragon, motorcycle man)and would recommend this book to teachers and librarians as a read-aloud. Enjoy - we have!
Words can hurt or heal Dec 3, 2001
Few kids' books clearly show the consequences words can have when they are used as weapons. This book is one of them, and does it in style.
Even little kids understand the consequences here, because the ripple effect is illustrated so well. Andrew's older sister ran to answer the phone, tripping Andrew and spilling him and his toys in the process. He then spewed "the angriest bunch of words anyone has ever heard."
As soon as he said them, he wished he had not. But it was too late. Marion got on the phone with Ted, the baker's son, and yelled at him, who yelled out the window and into a room where a poet was working. The poet lost his rhyme, and screamed angry words at a motorcyclist passing by. And so on.
The words went to some fanciful places, including a dragon's breath, but kids get the message: Once spoken, ephemeral though words seem, they have a way of traveling.
The story ends on a happy note, the happiest part of which is that kids finish this book understanding the hurtful potential--and positive power--of words. Alyssa A. Lappen
