Anger is OKAY, Violence is NOT, written by Julie Federico and illustrated by Glori Alexander, received a radiant review from Blue Ink Review this month. The reviewer said Julie’s book, “is a thoughtful, much-needed addition to pre-school teachers’ and social workers’ libraries. With vibrant, TV cartoon-like illustrations and simple, direct text appropriate for even the youngest children, this picture book explores the complexity and vitality of anger, and when it is appropriately expressed and when it is not.”

The reviewer goes on, “Needless to say, this is complex emotional territory, and Federico’s tone is perfect: even, loving, simple, clear. Educators and caregivers may well find this a helpful tool in eliciting important conversations, and the book includes contact information for The National Domestic Violence Hotline and other respected sources of support.” To read the complete review, click here.
