When Anh’s friends leave and he feels left out at school, his anger shows up to keep him company. Anh, the protagonist of Gail Silver’s previous book, Anh’s Anger, is a typical and easy-to-relate-to elementary school-age boy. His anger, personified as a red hairy impulsive creature, teaches him some valuable lessons about not getting carried away by his strong emotions. By counting his steps and coordinating them with his breathing Anh is able to slow down and take his anger for a peaceful and magically transformative walk. Reach and called Anh’s Anger, "One of the best books we’ve ever seen on the issue of dealing with anger." The New Yorker review highlighted how the book uses "deep breathing… to regain control during a tantrum." And Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh calls the series, "a wonderful gift for both children and adults who want to learn how to turn unhappy situations into joyful ones." Steps and Stones, the second of the Anh’s Anger Story trilogy, will help children learn to understand the causes of their own strong emotions, and teaches them peaceful ways to resolve difficulties through mindfulness and meditation. It is an invaluable tool for parents and teachers alike.

“Lily was at a picnic with her father and her little sister, Ruby, but it wasn’t much fun.” So opens the final story in Gail Silver’s celebrated Anh’s Anger trilogy. Ruby was spoiling Lily’s time, making it impossible for her to play her game, and she was mad. But when Lily pushed her sister out of the way, her father comforted Ruby. Lily was confused. Luckily, her father had brought something else on their picnic, a journal his own grandfather had written when he was a boy, in which he wrote about the first time he met his Anger. As Lily and her father turned the sepia pages of the old notebook, they read about Metta, the ancient meditation practice during which you wish happiness, health, safety, and loving kindness for yourself and those people toward whom you are having difficult feelings. With original watercolors by award-winning illustrator Youme Nguyen Ly, Peas, Love, and Understanding helps children acknowledge anger, understand the cause of their anger, and ultimately feel safe expressing themselves and accepting accountability for their actions when appropriate. By learning these skills, children can grow comfortable with them and carry them into adulthood with ease and confidence.

  • Author: Bronwyn Davies
  • Publisher: Routledge

Through a series of exquisite encounters with children, and through a lucid opening up of new aspects of poststructuralist theorizing, Bronwyn Davies opens up new ways of thinking about, and intra-acting with, children. This book carefully guides the reader through a wave of thought that turns the known into the unknown, and then slowly, carefully, makes new forms of thought comprehensible, opening, through all the senses, a deep understanding of our embeddedness in encounters with each other and with the material world. This book takes us into Reggio-Emilia-inspired Swedish preschools in Sweden, into the author’s own community in Australia, into poignant memories of childhood, and offers the reader insights into: new ways of thinking about children and their communities; the act of listening as emergent and alive; ourselves as mobile and multiple subjects; the importance of remaining open to the not-yet-known. Defining research as diffractive, and as experimental, Davies’ relationship to the teachers and pedagogues she worked with is one of co-experimentation. Her relationship with the children is one in which she explores the ways in which her own new thinking and being might emerge, even as old ways of thinking and being assert themselves and interfere with the unfolding of the new. She draws us into her ongoing experimentation, asking that we think hard, all the while delighting our senses with the poetry of her writing, and the stories of her encounters with children.
