      I'm a fan of most stories that help kids deal with emotions.

    3. Lisa Vegan says:

      Terrific book for helping kids cope with any angry feelings that they feel. The story depicts how a child can feel a very intense feeling and deal with it in an appropriate way, and, very importantly, shows how feelings don’t last, but pass. The book contains wonderful, colorful illustrations which really enhance the story.

      Written by Molly Bang, illustrated by Molly Bang, published by, copyright year. Summary: A 2000 Caldecott Honor book about a little girl with big temper, but who eventually calms down. Response: Amazing, brilliantly colored illustrations help tell the story of Sophie’s mood. I think students, especially primary, would be attracted the bold illustrations and realistic image of how one feels when they are mad. Possible Units: Character Ed: How to Deal with Feelings/Emotions. Art: Color, Line

      This simple book has a short text dealing with Sophie's getting angry over having to share a stuffed gorilla with her sister. I like the way that the author/illustrator's colors match the child's mood--lots of loud, brash reds and yellows for her temper tantrum, and soft blues and greens for when she calms down. Although I am not a big fan of Bang's style of illustration, it does work effectively for this book.

    6. Katy Houseman says:

      This is an excellent book to use when you have children who may get angry easily or who just don`t know how to deal with anger. Everyone deals with anger in differnt ways. This book can act as a conversation starter on ways to deal with anger.

    7. Liesl says:

      What I like most about this book is how it shows kids that it's okay and perfectly normal to get angry once in a while as long as you have an effective, healthy way to deal with said anger.

      This picture book received the 2000 Caldecott Honor of the Charlotte Zolotow Award. This book was intended for children ages 5-7. This book is about a little girl, named Sophie, who gets really angry because it was her sister’s turn to play with the toy that Sophie had already played with. When she gets angry, she runs and runs until she is alone and works through her emotions alone before returning home. The reason why I rated this book with 4 stars is because it is a really good read for nov [...]

      1. In this book, Sophie is playing with toys. Her mother makes her share a toy gorilla with her sister, but Sophie wasn't finished playing with it. She gets very upset she has to share. She kicks and screams. Then she runs and continues to run until she is surrounded by nature. She climbs a tree and is calmed down by observing the nature around her. After she is calmed down, she returns home, and everything is back to normal. 2. I would say appropriate grade level for this book would be pre-k to [...]

      When Sophie Gets Angry- Really, Really, Angry… written by Molly Bang, is a children’s book about a young girl who was playing with her toy when her sister grabbed it and took it from her because it was her turn to play with it. Sophie got extremely angry so she left the house and ran to her favorite tree and climbed it until she calmed down. Then she went back to her house and her family was very happy to see her. The cover of this book is very bright yellow with a picture of Sophie’s ang [...]

    11. NS Kelley says:

      This is a great story about a little girl who gets infuriated about her little brother taking her toy. The little brother not only snatches it form her, but her mother agrees that it is his turn to play with it. She is already upset about this situation when she trips over a truck. She is so angry that she has to do something to help calm her down. She goes for a long run to help regather her thoughts. She then describes relaxing outside, climbing a tree, and looking at the water to help her fee [...]

      Summary: Sophie is a young girl who gets very angry when she doesn't get her way. She throws a huge tantrum and runs until she can no longer run anymore. Then she cries for a little bit. Sophie knows how to calm herself down and when reading you will see how. Grade level: K-4Classroom use: This could be used any day in the classroom. It has a great moral and all kids could benefit from reading. Individual students who may benefit from reading: Any child who also get angry easily could read about [...]

      I read this book on children’s library and really enjoyed it. When Sophie Gets Angry is about a young girl who is getting angry with things that are happening in her life. The illustrator has done a fantastic job in giving beautiful visuals of what it looks like and feels like to be angry. There are pictures of a loud roar and of a volcano to represent the girls anger. It takes the reader through the steps of being angry as well as how Sophie calms herself down and is supported by clear visual [...]

    14. Bernice says:

      This story is about a young girl that gets very angry after her younger sister takes away her toy. Her voice is seen in the illustrations through her screams that are fill up the entire page. To release her anger she runs away and finds peace with the nature that surrounds her. It is then that she is able to return back home and find that everything is back to normal. Sophie is the highlight of the story and we see her emotions come out through the bright colors that are splashed on all the page [...]

    15. Linda Lipko says:

      Of the Caldecott honor and medal books I've read thus far, this one is not stellar or even mediocre. The illustrations seem harsh and bright, they are very hard on the eyes!Sophie cannot control her anger and she kicks, screams and wants to smash "the world to smithereens." She runs, she cries and then she discovers the beauty of nature and calms down. She returns home and is welcomed and everyone is glad she's home.End of story.but the "real" world perhaps Sophie should be reprimanded and remin [...]

    16. Erin Lewis says:

      I think this is a really cute book. I like the way it is illustrated, as well as the font choice, because it makes it more appealing to younger children. It is very age appropriate because it teaches a lesson about anger management that children need to be learning around the preschool age before they enter grade school. It's a very good representation of a story book because it tells the full story of how Sophie manages her anger, and it is also illustrated very well. I would use this book to h [...]

      Story Summary: Sophie is a young girl that doesn't like to share! One afternoon she is playing with a toy in her room and her sister asked to play with it because it was her turn. Sophie's sister took the toy and this made Sophie so angry that she left her home and went on a very long walk! She climbed a tree and watched the ocean and felt the breeze. She soon calmed down and went back home where her family was waiting for her.Grade: 1st-3rdClassroom: Lesson over interactions with others and fee [...]

      This book is one that I had seen in the library many times and passed by without opening it. It is an adorable book with a terrific message. I plan to use this in my classroom in order to introduce a discussion about how to react when you are feeling angry. I have one particular student who has very little coping skills when he is angry and/or sad so I think this book would be especially good for him but also for the whole group. In the story, Sophie becomes very angry with her sister who takes [...]

    19. Kari says:

      This is my 3-year-old daughter's new favorite book. She is enthralled by how angry Sophie gets, yet her choice is to run. Please note that when Sophie kicks, she doesn't connect with anyone. But she is spitting mad and her biggest release is to run hard and fast and commune with nature. My daughter is fixated on why it is that Sophie cries after she is so angry. This a beautiful way to capture that anger is actually hurt. Resolution is critical to a young reader. My daughter loves how Sophie pai [...]

    20. Luann says:

      Wow, I love Molly Bang's use of color and line to depict Sophie's moods. When Sophie is really, really angry she is surrounded by vibrating lines of red and purple and it appears she is going to explode! But then she runs and runs out in the forest and the colors change to greens, browns, and finally blues. The pictures do such a great job of conveying not only the storyline, but the emotions, that the words are almost completely unnecessary. A great book to encourage discussions about emotions [...]

    21. Tatiana says:

      I forgot I read (and wrote a lesson plan for) this book! It was over Thanksgiving break, when I had about, oh, a hundred assignments to work on simultaneously. I actually read it on ICDL, which is a great resource for kids books. Sophie reminds me of Where the Wild Things Are in that fantasy and reality blend, and the emotions of the children transcend their situations into the world of imagination. It's a good story about how kids deal with their anger. And the illustrations are Van Gogh-esque, [...]

      • When Sophie gets angry she runs away from home. As she runs she calms herself down with the peaceful surrounding of nature. • K-2nd • This could be used in an English class.• This could be used with students that need help controlling their anger. • This book can be used in a group to help students identify character traits.• After reading this book, students can discuss ways that they calm down when they are upset. What advice would they give Sophie?• Other books like this incl [...]

    23. Kirsten says:

      The illustrations in this are great, and most kids can relate pretty well to Sophie. I found, however, that while they relate to Sophie's temper tantrum at the beginning of the book, Sophie's solution to it -- to run into the woods and be alone for a while -- doesn't really scan with West Philadelphia preschoolers. They honestly don't seem to get it. Probably if Sophie went up to her room to be alone or hid in her closet or something, it would make more sense to them

    24. Halle Stout says:

      This book is so cute! It deals with a girl named Sophie, who becomes angry after a confrontation about a stuffed gorilla. When she's mad she does productive things like go for a walk, climb a tree, etc. I recommend this book for any young child who needs to deal with their anger. I'llustrations are cute too.

    25. Ralf Urbach says:

      This is a book I use for my behavioral counseling classes. Great illustrations showing how anger looks from the outside in, when the pictures get bigger and show more vibrant reds. I also used this book to help process to my children that everybody gets angry but it's how you control it and how not to let it control you.

    26. Agnė says:

      The artwork works very well to convey the emotions, but it is VERY unappealing to look at

    27. Angela says:

      A good book to teach kids about feelings and dealing with anger.

    28. Marcelaine says:

      This is a book about a little girl who gets incredibly angry and is able to calm down by running outside and observing nature. While I think this is a great coping mechanism (I often encourage my kids to go outside to calm down when they are angry), I was annoyed at the way the mom handled the sharing incident at the beginning of the book. Sophie's younger sister took away a toy that Sophie was playing with and said, "My turn!" and their mother took the younger sister's side and insisted that So [...]

    29. Courtney says:

      In "When Sophie gets Angry-- Really, Really, Angry" all you really see is a little girl showing her tale after not wanting to share with her sister, something that would earn my own children a pop on the bottom. I believe that this story could have been written better, with more details on what makes you feel angry, but also what it takes to calm down in the different situations- not just a little girl who runs away when she gets mad. I was not impressed.

    30. Kelli Torgersen says:

      When Sophie Gets Angry-Really, Really Angry by Molly Bang is a story that every child can relate to as well as a Caldecott Honor Book. In this picture book a young girl named Sophie gets angry because her sister took her stuffed toy gorilla from her. This makes Sophie so angry that she screams and want to "smash the world to smithereens." The reader then learns that when Sophie gets angry, she runs. She runs as far as she can into nature where she finds peace and reason while sitting in the bran [...]
