Josh’s Smiley Faces: A Story About Anger


SKU: 9781591470014 Categories: , ,

When Josh is angry, he throws his toys, breaks things, and even hits his little brother. Mom says it’s time for Josh to learn better ways to get his mad feelings out. With the help of a chart of smiley faces, Josh starts to use his words, get along better with others-and feel more ‘smiley’ himself!

Josh’s Smiley Faces provides a simple yet effective tool for parents to help their young children learn how to express anger, frustration, and other difficult emotions.

In a Note to Parents, psychologist and author Virginia Shiller discusses anger and the shaping of behaviour with reward programs.

Ages 3-6 years.
