When Sophie Gets Angry -- Really, Really Angry...

Amazon.com Rating:

"Oh is Sophie ever angry now!" Everybody gets angry sometimes. For children, anger can be very upsetting. Parents, teachers, and children can talk about it. People do lots of different things when they get angry. In this Caldecott-honor book, kids will see what Sophie does when she gets angry. What do you do?

"Sophie becomes so angry that 'She wants to smash the world to smithereens.' She kicks, screams, and eventually runs into the woods... and is comforted by the 'wide world.' Calm, she returns home ready to participate in family life. The text is appropriately brief, for it is Bang's double-page illustrations, vibrating with saturated colors, that reveal the drama of the child's emotions." -- School Library Journal

Description

"Raw zigzags of color convey a girl's rage in this compassionate volume, which proposes a cure for anger.... With minimal text, Bang gives a realistic account of embattled siblings and prescribes self-imposed solitude. Edgy illustrations with roilingly patterned foreground shapes and looming, dark backgrounds convey Sophie's inner violence.... Bang's evocatively illustrated book suggests no quick fixes; she treats childhood emotions with respect." -- Publisher's Weekly
