Reviews - What do customers think about When Sophie Gets Angry...really, Really Angry?

When Sophie gets angry...she runs away!  Apr 28, 2008
This is NOT a good book to teach kids how to handle anger. It is NOT a good idea to TEACH KIDS TO RUN AWAY from their anger and situation. This is not based on good psychology.

Small children are very literal, and they are not going to get any other message from this book other than to run away. This book was not well researched, and I cannot believe it won any awards, much less a Caldecott.

As a physician and a mother, I must give this 2 thumbs down.
Important topic--but bad example  Mar 16, 2008
My wife and I liked the concept of a book about anger. However, we've pulled this book from our children's reading list. The reason is this. Sophie gets angry when her sister takes a toy from her. The mother supports the taking saying that it is Sophie's sister's turn. That's okay.

But then what Sophie does to deal with her anger is "She runs!" Sophie runs away from home. "She runs and runs and runs until she can't run anymore." She runs into a forest.

Unfortunately for us we don't live in a secluded, safe, forested area. We live in suburbs where there are cars moving about and people we don't know. So giving an example of a child running away from home doesn't work for us and we cannot recommend this book.
Great Children's book  Mar 8, 2008
I've read this book with elementary aged children who had difficulty dealing with their anger, and they love it. It's short and to the point. I would recommend the book for ages 2-8.
Good book for children to learn about their anger  Feb 15, 2008
Our 3 yr old son had a read the book over and over when we first purchased it. I think it's helped him to understand calming-down time. Haven't read it much lately, but recommended.
When Sophie Gets Angry  Jan 8, 2008
This selection is perfect for young children to read. Sofie expresses her anger like a volcano, but then calms down after connecting with nature. Teachers can use this book as a vehicle for teaching children appropriate ways to express anger.
