Wee Reads: Simon and the Big, Bad, Angry Beasts by Ian De Haes

Ever since Finn was born, and even before then, we would read to him. We wanted to show him reading from an early age. Now he loves us to read the same books, over, and over, and over. But it is the sweetest thing, when he likes to pick out a book and climb into our laps. 

Simon and the Big, Bad, Angry Beasts: A Book about AngerSimon and the Big, Bad, Angry Beasts by Ian De Haes


When Simon gets mad, he gets REALLY mad. So mad that big, bad, angry beasts appear. At first Simon loves having the beasts around to help scare off anyone who upsets him, but over time he realizes that no one wants to be around him or the beasts. This makes Simon sad, so he decides to try to still his mind and practice being calm. And the beasts disappear!
Featuring colorful and expressive illustrations, this insightful book helps children ages 4-8 learn how to handle their anger. A guide for parents and teachers in the back of the book features strategies for talking to children about their emotions along with various exercises they can use to cope with anger.

Do you like this book?

Yeah because he got mad and he had a dragon and a lion!

What's your favorite part of the book?

When the dragon spit fire at everyone! And then he played on the see-saw by himself. But then the dragon turned into butterflies and he had friends again!

What do you think of the cover?

I like all the scary animals! ROAR!

This is a really adorable book about anger. It shows how anger can be looked at like animals, and the more angry you get the bigger than animals get.
Simon learned that the more he got angry, the less people wanted to be around him.
He was sad and lonely and had to learn to work through his anger, or he wouldn't have any friends left. He didn't know how to stop being angry though, he tried to shout and be loud. Until he realized that he just needed a quiet moment to calm down. 
This was a really fun one to read, and as you can see, the illustrations are gorgeous. Beautiful colors and super cute!
