This eBook is about CONTROLLING ANGER
Journey to India and discover ways to control a hot temper.
MALLIKA is a tiger with a temper. Her short fuse is ignited first by her infuriating brother Ben and then by a mischievous band of jeering monkeys. Short-tempered Mallika even manages to get mad at herself!
It takes Mallika a while to figure out that being angry is no fun and that a tantrum doesn't make things better.
India's Ranthambhore National Park is the scene of Jami Parkison's powerful story about managing anger. Once the private hunting grounds of maharajahs, Ranthambhore is now a wildlife sanctuary and home to the magnificent Bengal tiger. Under ancient banyan trees and among ruins of palaces and pavilions, this now endangered species rules the landscape. Ranthambhore is home to a host of exotic species, including leaping sambar deer, the regal peacock, the imposing tree-pie bird, and the revered langur monkey. Artist Itoko Maeno captures the mystery and excitement of Mallika's world in compelling watercolor illustrations.
So journey to India and Mallika's world and meet an amazing little tiger who learns amazing ways to control her hot temper.
A SURPRISE and added bonus is the "Enrichment Information"
A second big plus is the "Letter to Parents and Educators" which includes many relevant questions and comments to facilitate conversation with young readers about the message of the story...learning to manage and control anger and temper tantrums. So even though on the surface this is just an engaging story for children, it is also truly helpful in a real way.

A great read to kids about bullies and feelings. We loved the doggies as the people in this story. Every kid should read this.

This made my girlfriend giggle, she loves puppy tales. The mixture of different breeds havinc fun together made it even more cute!
5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful pictures..., August 4, 2012
The pictures here are beautiful and are nicely optimized for Fire; the landscape format will even override a locked screen for maximum viewing. The print can be double-tapped to enlarge, a fact that probably should be explained for readers who aren't aware. Most highly recommended!
4.0 out of 5 stars That Dog Is a Bully, July 18, 2012
Nancy Mauerman (Portland, OR)
Emily, a dog in Boston, breaks from her person, meets a bully and a new dog to the city and finds herself in a pickle. The bully is funny and entertaining at the new dog's expense but his jokes create bad feelings inside Emily. She changes direction and breaks free from the bully. The lesson the book presents is direct but not preachy, the pictures are simply beautiful and echo the story's message through the body language of the dogs. I had some problems with the small text but I love the book plus at the end I found a map and sketch of all the important sights mentioned in the story.
I like stories that focus on noticing the feelings inside and making big choices, like this one.
