When was the last time you listened to how your child was feeling? It turns out they have a lot to say.
Told from the perspective of a grade 1 boy, this book illustrates what sometimes goes on in your young reader's mind, that may be very difficult for them to verbalize.
I feel like I'm getting yelled at all day, whether at home or at school...
What can I do to make them happy? Am I bad person...?
I got yelled at when I accidentally made my baby sister cry. I got yelled at when I made the girl in my class cry. And even when I get into arguments with my classmates, I get yelled at.
The grownups always tell me, "Are you causing trouble again?", "You should apologize!", "Why aren't you saying anything?"
It turns out there are a lot of things a child may want to say, but have trouble finding the words. A touching book to share with your child, to give them the words they need to talk about things, and to help us reflect on our interaction with our young ones.
