At the beach he is making a Sandcastle with his sister and the Sandcastle collapses. He is angry! Mario’s mother encourages him to take deep breaths like he is smelling a flower and count to five. This helps! Other scenarios follow. Mario’s mother encourages him to do balloon breaths which help calm him down. Then This children’s book deals with how to handle anger and strong feelings. Mario is featured throughout this book. He comes across different circumstances where he has very strong feelings! At the beach he is making a Sandcastle with his sister and the Sandcastle collapses. He is angry! Mario’s mother encourages him to take deep breaths like he is smelling a flower and count to five. This helps! Other scenarios follow. Mario’s mother encourages him to do balloon breaths which help calm him down. Then he gets to put all his anger in a ball and toss the ball of anger away! Another technique Mario’s mother shares with him is to take a balloon breath and give himself a hug! He had been hurt because his sister did not invite him to play a game she was playing with her friends. Anger can result from many different situations as we discover following Mario throughout the story! Frustration following the Sandcastle collapse. Hurt feelings from his sister telling him no. This book also explores Mario’s fear of the dentist which also can create strong feelings. His Dad helps him to talk about what he is afraid of. They do balloon breaths together as they process his fears. This book is very positive. Easy for a young child to understand how to do the breathing to help them cope with their strong feelings. The illustrations are colorful and easy to recognize who Mario is and his family. The scenarios are described well and can be relatable to children as well as adults! I think we all could use with a little reminder that some deep breathing helps!! I personally like the idea of balloon breaths as it’s easy for a child to picture a balloon as they are breathing and expanding their tummy and chest! Breathing deeply like smelling a flower is also a good visual to picture. Putting all your anger in a ball and tossing it away. These are creative approaches to dealing with feelings and what to do with them. I also like the idea of giving yourself a hug!

    Liked the variety of situations that caused the upset feelings I liked the variety of situations that caused the upset feelings. The advise for dealing with those feelings was good, though I don't think it would work so easily without a lot of initial preparation and repetition for Mario to be so excepting of the method. My one complaint is the author's insistence on forcing a rhyming scheme in the written content, instead of letting the story flow normally. It sounds forced instead of natural and Liked the variety of situations that caused the upset feelings I liked the variety of situations that caused the upset feelings.

My one complaint is the author's insistence on forcing a rhyming scheme in the written content, instead of letting the story flow normally. It sounds forced instead of natural and is completely unnecessary. This isn't Dr. Seuss material - or skill level.

    Helpful for young children. This story does a very good job in showcasing that being mad doesn't always look the same. We are given a few different situations that can cause anger and the illustrations of how that can present. It's wonderful to show our young readers that not only does everyone get mad, but anger can show differently depending on the situation. It may look like sadness, stubbornness or "typical" anger. Michael Gordon doesn't stop at identifying what makes us and and how it feels, Helpful for young children. This story does a very good job in showcasing that being mad doesn't always look the same.

    I Don't Feel Right?! Here is a courageous book about Mario and his Anger. Michael Gordon has written another fascinating book that shows children what to do when real things happen. The illustrations are so sharp you can see Mario's angry face and his mother's peaceful one. I highly recommend this book for all kiddos and some adults who need help with their angry feelings.

    Like how this book shows Mario in different situations causing anger and anxiety. It validates his feeling and gives helpful fixes to make these situation more tolerable. Rhyming language is great to keep young children listening. A great read to help little ones. Maybe adults could learn a little from this also.

    Feeling mad A rhyming children's story, that is very colourful and attracts the eye. This story is about Mario and how he handles when he gets made. My son enjoyed the story, especially when it describes how Mario feels when he is upset - the changes to his body and mind. Then what he does with his parents and also by himself to release the energy. Feeling mad A rhyming children's story, that is very colourful and attracts the eye.

    I read this book to our 3 year old granddaughter and our 5 year old grandson this week. They both liked it and rated it as a five. They are the experts on what they like and what works for them so I am going with their decision. :)

    Dealing With Anger This is another good book about dealing with anger. If we teach children how to control their emotions, they will more likely be able to control themselves when they become upset or very angry

    Anger management for kids The book offers practical excercises that are easy to use for children to manage anger. It also talks a bit on how children can deal with anxiety which also includes a practical activity.

    Good book for children I like the different ways it mentioned for Mario to relax and let go of his anger. Children need to learn different ways to relax and let go of their anger. What works for one child does not work for all.
