9781925420005: Kanga, My Dragon of Anger: A book about Anger (Building Resilience) (Volume 1)

Meet Al and his pet dragon, Kanga, who roars when Al is raging and angry. Al finds it hard to control his temper and explodes whenever he is frustrated. Find out what makes Al scream and shout. Discover how Al controls Kanga and his temper in this fun, rhyming educational book. Can you find Kanga hiding on each page? Kids, try out the fun activities in the back of the book to learn more about dealing with Kanga, the angry dragon. There is also a useful adults page at the end of the book to guide discussion with children about anger and managing it in constructive ways. "Kanga, My Dragon of Anger" is one of four books in The Building Resilience picture book series. This series gives children, teachers and parents advice on how to deal with common situations and uncomfortable feelings. It also encourages parent-child discussion about difficult topics. Some topics (feelings and even common life events such as death) are traditionally taboo or are challenging for adults to talk about. If adults are uncomfortable talking about issues or feelings, it is even more difficult for children to discuss them or to know how to effectively cope with situations.This range of books opens the communication pathways, in a fun way, and helps children and adults face matters without shame, embarrassment or stigma. The author, Doctor Harmony, is an Australian psychiatrist and mother who has the desire to help build resilience in children by promoting awareness of feelings, positive communication and development of constructive coping skills. Having seen many adults who struggle with these issues, her books help to instill coping skills early in life. The books are easy for children to relate to and understand, especially as feelings are usually difficult for children to grasp, given the abstract nature of it. Look out for the other books in Building Resilience book series one: Jo, My Sad Hippo (A book about Sadness) My Pet Monster (A book about Worry) The Cat's Got My Tongue (A book about Shyness and Performance Anxiety) If you like series one, look out for series two! FEATURED REVIEW by KIRKUS Review (Only 10% of their reviews are published as featured reviews) "Young Al has a dragon in his pocket. When the boy gets angry, he says, Kanga, the dragon, “breathes fire into my head and belly”—a wonderful way to describe how fuzzy one’s thinking can get and how uncomfortable one’s stomach can feel when anger takes over... Overall, the concepts and the visualization of the dragon, are excellent and will appeal to readers who have trouble coping with emotional challenges. The illustrations are simplistic, and characters’ proportions are more free-form than lifelike, but the book’s seek-and-find aspect, which encourages children to locate Kanga on each page, will delight readers on the younger end of its target audience...Thought-provoking questions, fun activities, and insightful imagery mark this book as one that may be particularly useful in schools." REVIEW by Stephen Thompson, Editor and Publisher (Essteemedia): "What a great series. Gorgeous pictures, cute rhymes and wonderfully presented. What more could you ask for in a series of kids' books? Well. you could ask for an important message about behaviour, and maybe a note to parents about how to reinforce that message, and maybe a game or two to play. Check. The series has all that. They are not just picture books but are also handy reference books for parents ... and even adults in general. They might be set out as books for children, but there are a few tips in there that could help many grown-ups. Highly recommended for children of all ages."

Book Description Prosperous Alliance Enterprise Pty Ltd, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Doctor Harmony (illustrator). Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.When adults are not comfortable talking about and facing uncomfortable feelings, such as anger, it is then difficult for their children to learn how to deal with these feelings constructively. Bottled emotions increase the risk of physical and emotional health problems. Some people turn to drugs and alcohol, comfort-eating, gambling or domestic violence. It also fractures relationships and families. Vast amounts of research suggest that promoting resilience (such as constructive use of our uncomfortable feelings) reduces the risk of children later developing behavioural problems, being bullied or bullying others, having substance abuse, mental illness, suicide and school dropout. Resilience can also promote academic performance and can even improve treatment outcomes in adults with anxiety and depression. Treating emotional and social problems when they have already developed is more difficult and costly than preventing it. We need to be instilling our children with skills early in life to prevent problems from happening. The message is clear: Everyone will be confronted with life challenges and stress, no matter what age. Uncomfortable feelings are also normal. Once we accept this and can identify our feelings, we then have choices about how to deal with them constructively. This empowers children and families, reduces helplessness and brings hope. Resilience is a lifetime priceless gift we can teach our children with endless benefits. All Dr Harmony s books: -Have find the character on each illustrated page; -Rhyme (research suggests rhyming books lead to advanced readers); -Have a fun activities section for children to emphasise the messages of each book; -Have an adults page provides tips to adults to help children to work through each feeling in real-life situations; -Are easy for children to relate to. TIP: Get your children to draw their angry dragons and give them personalised names! Their dragons can then be referred in daily life whenever they feel angry. This reminds them about the strategies discussed in the book. The more frequently the concepts are used, eventually it is easier for children to independently problem-solve life challenges.
