Rebecca Gresch about this book: This story has a classic feel that turns bedtime or story time into a teachable moment about love and discipline. Children will enjoy turning the pages and pointing out the characters in the book, exclaiming over their various escapades. Parents will find pleasure in reading the book aloud in a familiar sing-song rhythm.
It was written from a child's perspective to give parents a view of discipline from the other side of the fence. (Have you ever considered how it feels to be constantly corrected?) It also carries a heartwarming lesson for children about parents' unconditional love for their kids, regardless of their behavior. The book's ending provides a feel-good opportunity for Mom or Dad to discuss with their child(ren) their own ideas about parenting, love and discipline.
The characters are whimsical, furry creatures that appeal to young kids or anyone who loves stuffed animals. Illustrations are intentionally simple and child-like, with eye-catching colors and hand-drawn details. It's a children's book that seeks to connect with the mind of a child, while giving the parents a bit of insight as well!
