Cohen, Scott Daddy Said a Word* I never Heard Little Brown, 2015. $15.00 PICTURE BOOK
girl has a word catch her attention. Its something her daddy says after he hits
his thumb with a hammer by accident. (In this case it’s the names of different
types Swedish furniture). More of these loud words spoken right after accidents
or upsets, fill the girls head. Eventually when she gets upset, one come out of
her mouth. Her teacher and parents work together to provide her with better
words to use when she is unhappy.
is hilarious, but not right for children..I know it sounds like a lesson is
learned by the end but then mommy picks up a hot plate and…well you…Also
children will not get the humor of the Swedish furniture names as a swear word
replacement. (Sort of had to have been the victim of putting together IKEA
furniture to get this one as well). The illustrations are super funny, one
image includes a beer at a poker game..so get my drift, it’s a gag gift for grownups/parents.
