I shows this second of silence before the big explosion with such a vivid tension! *This review is part of my project Characters with characterCheck outchildren's book reviews in my Reviews in Chalk Blog! I change Harriet's name to my daughter's name It works better that way. The illustrations of this book was very cute and I think the author had a good idea behind it But I guess because I've never really believed in not disciplining your child when they do something wrong Allow them to be a child but if they do something wrong tell them not just pat them on the head and say it's okay; until it builds up (like it did in this book) and you end up yelling at them Then they don't understand why that was wrong but the other stuff wasn't.
