Antony, Steve Betty Goes Bananas. PICTURE BOOK. Scwartz & Wade (Random House), 2014. $17.
Betty the baby gorilla loves bananas, but every time something goes wrong, she screams and cries and throws a fit - even though that does nothing to solve the problem. Mr. Toucan has patience with Betty and shows her how to deal with the banana and deal with her poor behavior.
This is a cute book and a great little story about how useless tantrums are and how to respond to someone having a tantrum. I can think of dozens, if not 100’s of parents who need to read this themselves and read it with their tantrum-throwing children.
