The Grouchies by Debbie Wagenbach


The Grouchies by Debbie Wagenbach

An appealing, read-aloud book about grumpiness and anger - and how to banish these negative emotions with positive thoughts. It takes a light-hearted approach to anger management, which is an important topic for youngsters. It repeats phrases in a way that will appeal to children - and will stick with them. It contains an extensive and useful Note to Parents, written by a psychologist.
