I cannot recommend this wonderful book highly enough... The book helps children to understand what is happening to them when they get angry. The author cleverly describes anger as a red beast... The wonderful illustrations and simple story help children to talk about how their red beast makes them feel and how they can learn to tame it. The author also takes time to explain the strategies used to support children with ASD... I would definitely recommend this for any parent who is struggling with an angry child.
