Liz Tames a Dragon (and her Anger) Book Review

Posted by Debra Ann Elliott at 3:36 PM
Disclosure: I received a copy for review. However, all opinions are my own.

Kids get angry and sometimes have a hard time controlling their anger. With most kids it's frustration that leads to anger. Other times it can be a variety of more serious issues. Whatever the reason for their anger Author Stephanie Painter has written a wonderful children's book that will help any child conquer their anger.

In Liz Tames a Dragon, Liz gets so anger she turns into a dragon, but once she learns how to tame the dragon and her anger she returns to normal. My grandson gets angry a lot and I was so thankful Stephanie contacted me. Liz Tames a Dragon is the perfect book for any child who has an inner dragon and also a great parenting tool. As a parent, I'd recommend this book to any parent whose child has anger issues(which is a normal emotion). 

This book couldn't have come at a better time for me and my grandson. After the death of my youngest daughter, my grandson had a lot of anger and Liz Tames a Dragon showed him how to tame his persona; dragon.

Included also is an Activity Guide for Parents and Child Therapists by Marlo Carney Zarzaur, Ed.D., includes art, games and activities that will help kids learn how to verbalize their emotions and recognize physical cues of anger.

We give Liz Tames a Dragon (and her Anger)  two thumbs up and 5 stars!

Liz Tames a Dragon (and her Anger)  written by Stephanie Painter and illustrated by artist Jeanne Seagle is available for $13.95 at Bright Kids Books.

Anger is a normal emotion, but one that can be difficult to learn to control. The picture book Liz Tames A Dragon (and her anger) will help children find healthy ways to manage their angry feelings. In the story, Liz finds that sharing life with a sister isn't always easy. She becomes so angry that her anger morphs her into a fire-breathing dragon. Liz is certain that her sister has cast a magic spell until she realizes only she has the power to tame this dragon. Watercolor illustrations by artist Jeanne Seagle capture the character’s anger, confusion, and cooperative actions that lead to peacemaking.

I'm so sorry about your daughter Debra. This book provides an example of one of the things I love about picture books. They can truly play a key role in helping children express themselves about the many emotions they experience. This sounds like a great book. I'm so glad you shared it in the Kid Lit Blog Hop. I hope you have a Merry Christmas and that you will join us again on the Hop in the new year.
