Since this is Squirrel Appreciation Day . . .
(Yes - it's a REAL THING. Did you think I could make up something as bizarre as that?)
I feel I must object to this author's choice of the noble furry-tailed rodent to play the part of a whiny, petulant brat in her otherwise enjoyable book.
The star of...

I rated this book as much to counter balance someone I know's 1 star rating. I can't say I like this book, but my two oldest children do since they were about 3 years old (and my oldest, now 8, still enjoys it). The lesson is poorly articulated, but it resonates with my kids. The value of this, a...

I found this book at the library and was so excited to read it to my class. They are hung up on "fair" and getting what they want. I have seen a lot of fits. Anyway, the other teachers were less than enthusiastic, taking the wind out of my sails. I still like it and my own children like it and un...

Ok, stepped down now.
I have said to my daughter: "You get what you get and you don't pitch a fit" ever since she was teeny-tiny. I sa...

As I said, my son with whom I share Kindle books, has been sharing the children's books that he chooses for his little kids, and I love them! They are as good as the adult and young adult fiction that I'm reading. They teach such great lessons, and in a clear, understandable way. Little kids are...

An okay book
I like that Melvin is a squirrel. I like that gave examples on what Melvin throws fits about. But over all I didn't care for this story. It felt undone, kind of flat. For this topic, it is not a bad book by I just don't see anything in this story that is going to make me want to recom...

"Melvin did not deal well with disappointment."
That's why he didn't care for his teacher's favorite rule: "You get what you get and you don't throw a fit." But at least he could still throw a fit at home. That is, until Melvin spouts the rule to his littler sister, who is about to throw a fit. Su...
