No More Tantrums by Maria van Lieshout- ADVISABLE

Van Lieshout, Maria. No More Tantrums, PICTURE BOOK. Chronicle Books, 2017. $9.99.

One little girl talks about what it was like when she would be told “No” as a little kid. She’d kick and yell and throw herself on the floor. But now that she’s a big kid, when she hears “No” she takes a deep breath and counts to five. Or she asks for a hug.

This is a good book for helping small children understand acceptable behavior and a good reminder for big kids who still might get upset and throw a tantrum or two. I liked that there were some ideas for kids to use when they are mad instead of having a fit. I do wish that the book could have taken more time on the ideas about calming down, instead of focusing on the tantrum part so much, but still a worthwhile purchase that is written well for kids.

PRE-K- ADVISABLE. Reviewed by Shay, School Librarian.
