Our Review

Cheerful the Angry Chicken by Joanna Rose is a heart-warming and entertaining book with important life lessons for kids: managing anger and frustration, and having the courage to stand up for what you believe in!

It’s natural to feel angry and frustrated at times but helping kids understand their strong emotions – and especially how to cope with these emotions.  Cheerful the Angry Chicken by Joanna Rose is a sweet and gentle picture book that follows the story of a happy little chicken who experiences anger when she decides to participate in the morning wakeup call with the roosters. Instead of encouraging Cheerful, roosters make fun of her, call her names, and tell her that she is not capable of doing the wake-up call as she is just a little chicken. But Cheerful is determined to participate and to do the morning call for the farm. With the help of her friends, Cheerful got her joy back and her desire to wake up others led her to wake up to her own possibilities and dreams. She also learns that it takes patience and practice to achieve desired goals.

We are very impressed with the breathtaking illustrations, the colors are attention-grabbing and gorgeous. Through beautiful pictures and an adorable storyline, this book helps kids understand and recognize anger, then helps them find strategies to handle anger and finally demonstrates ways that anger can be resolved. Apart from teaching kids how to deal with the strong emotions, Joanna’s book further helps open up the dialogue between you and your children about the difficult conversation about bullying that is extremely important. Talking to kids about these intense feelings can help, but books and stories can also let kids recognize their feelings and help them understand appropriate ways to respond in times of anger or frustration. Cheerful the Angry Chicken is a perfect story to show children that uniting together and standing up for what you believe in can change things for the better.

We are sure Cheerful the Angry Chicken is a perfect story for reading aloud or anytime enjoyment, but particularly for bedtime reading. We hope it will be a fun and happy addition to your family’s library to encourage sweet dreams.
