Book Review: I am Stronger Than Anger by Elizabeth Cole

Tired of telling your child not to shout or kick things when they are angry? Then this book is the perfect solution for you!

When children are angry, they can manifest their anger through bad behavior. They might shout, cry, throw things and roll on the floor or all of these things combined. That’s why most parents need help managing their kids emotions and feelings.

This book about little Nick:

  • contains lovely illustrations and lightly rhyming storyline
  • helps children recognize and cope with their anger in a funny way
  • offers a variety of calming techniques and is aimed to improve kids self-regulation skills
  • teaches children to admit their mistakes and say “I’m sorry”
  • includes a coloring page

“My three-year-old son still can’t read, but he is delighted with the funny illustrations of animals. He turns the pages over and over again.” – Amanda

“This story has helped my preschoolers to understand, recognize and deal with their emotions. Very useful picture book which offers fun kids activities and is full of amazing illustrations.” – Jennifer

Even if you have tried everything, this book is perfect for gaining a deeper understanding of children anger management and how to help kids control their emotions. We highly recommend it to parents.


My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

In this delightful story, Nick is told he can’t get a koala, and he gets angry. He learns how to deal with anger from the animals at the zoo. What a fun way to learn for both Nick and any children reading this book!

The story is told in rhymes and the illustrations are cute and colorful. I especially like the adorable animals. It’s bound to keep the attention of children plus they learn different ways to cope with anger. It also teaches them to own their behavior and apologize.

The only issue I have is that << >> are used for quotes most of the time instead of ” “. Occasionally, a quote with ” ” is thrown in making it more confusing. If not for that, I’d give this book 5 stars.
