Upon Review: Teaching Christ’s Children About Feeling Angry

I love to curl up with a nice, steaming cup of tea and a free book to review. Because I like to share the great reads I’ve found (and warn readers of the not-so-great finds), I developed a system:

  • One cup — worse than a cup of luke warm black pekoe
  • Two cups — it may be hot, but you’ll need plenty of sweetener just to tolerate it
  • Three cups — it’s not my favorite, but it beats going without
  • Four cups — nice and hot and only needs a smidge of sweetener to be perfect
  • Five cups — loose leaf vanilla Earl Grey, yummy

Sometimes a book or story doesn’t warrant a five cup rating, but it’s so good it can’t be missed. For those I include the “Must Read” starburst in front of the cup rating. You’ll find my cup rating above the picture of the cover. Enjoy!

 

Teaching Christ’s Children about Feeling Angry
by Corine Hyman

Five Cup

Does your child have trouble expressing their anger? Do they call names when angry or hit when mad? Teaching Christ’s Children about Feeling Angry helps children understand and manage the difficult emotion of anger from a biblical perspective. Once again, Corine Hyman breaks down what the Bible says in a way that children can understand. Like all of Corine’s books, Teaching Christ’s Children about Feeling Angry is designed to speak directly to the child, and acts as a discussion starter for children and adults to use together.

The Good…

 

I wish I’d had this book when my oldest child began school. I really think she would have benefited from the Biblical precepts that are written to her level of understanding.

This is simple and easy to understand, something I look for in a children’s teaching book. The best part is that Feeling Angry doesn’t “dumb down” the subject and gives some great Bible verses to back up the basic teachings. That’s not always easy to do when dealing with Biblical takes on tough subjects.

The illustrations are bright and colorful, which would be pleasing to children, and the Biblical tenets are sound.

The Not-so-good…

To be honest, I didn’t find anything I didn’t like about this book. For a child growing up in a Christian household, this is an excellent resource on how to deal with being angry.

The Overall…

I would recommend Teaching Christ’s Children about Feeling Angry by Corine Hyman for any parent needing to address anger issues with young children.
