Deep inside everyone, a red beast lies sleeping.

When it is asleep, the red beast is quite small, but when it wakes up, it begins to grow and grow.

This is the story of a red beast that was awakened.

Rufus is in the school playground when his friend John kicks a ball that hit him in the stomach, and wakes up the sleeping red beast: `I hate you - I'm gonna sort you out!'. The red beast doesn't hear the teacher asking if he's okay. It doesn't see that John is sorry - how can Rufus tame the red beast?

This vibrant fully illustrated children's storybook is written for children aged 5+, and is an accessible, fun way to talk about anger, with useful tips about how to 'tame the red beast' and guidance for parents on how anger affects children with Asperger's Syndrome.

            A great book to use with children who have anger issues or special needs with sensory issues. The class of year ones love the book and it helps them to realise we are all different and react differently to situations.

              This is a fantastic resource to teach children about self regulating their emotions. I purchased it for one of my students and it's been fantastic for all of my class. It's a great book. My students always request it to be read. I also made up my own sensory 'Red Beast Box' which compliments it nicely.

                  Easy story to read and understand by yourself and to the younger reader/classroom.
                  Good explanation of anxiety and frustration outbursts in children with special needs. Presented in an easy to read children's book and provides teaching techniques to calm the anger / ensure a reasonable outcome when tempers get out of control. Leaves the reader and audience with a better understanding and acceptance of outbursts/behavioural issues in children with special needs and provides knowledge of how to deal with these types of situations.
                  Also provides a list of additional strategies at the end of the book.
                  Good book to read to a classroom of students.

                  A Startling original book about anger management. -- Healthybooks.org.uk The illustrations are bold, vibrant in colour and child-friendly because they look like a very artistic child has drawn and then coloured them. There are 11 great strategies suggested at the back of the book, which are easy to implement and these alone make this terrific book work buying. -- Early Years Educator The author offers strategies to tackle the uncontrollable outbursts of rage by children with special needs, which can be so difficult to contend with. "Inside every one of us lies a Red Beast sleeping. Asleep, the beast is small and harmless but when it wakes up, it grows into a destructive monster. This is a description that most parents of children with speical needs will recognise. -- BILD This book has excellent tips for parents and teachers. This beautifully illustrated and child-friendly book, aimed at children aged 5-9,offers a host of strategies for anger management -- National Autism Society This beautifully illustrated and child friendly book, aimed at children aged five to nine, offers a host of strategies for anger management. This book has excellent tips for parents and teachers. -- Communication 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.
