X is for eXcited. You feel excited about special times, like when school is finally over. No more tests-- no more homework. Now you can enjoy your summer. As friends race out the door, they cheer, "have fun, see you next year!" (why do the authors cast school in a negative light? there are many other ways to describe excited to a child!)
F is for Frightened. It's dark in your bedroom, you're almost asleep. Suddenly you hear a strange noise. You feel frightened and turn on the light. What a relief...it's just one of your toys. (I'm all for talking about feeling frightened, but why propagate the whole "the dark is scary" concept? I don't want my kid to have that idea in his head)
W is for wishful. The candy shop has many treats; lollipops, chocolate, and gum. You want to try some of each, but have money for only one. You feel wishful-- it all looks so good. You want to buy everything-- imagine if you could. (wishful seems like a very obscure choice. why not pick one of many other W words, like weak, wonderful, worried, willing, or even worldly. also, their example propagates the whole "coveted candy" concept)
L is for lonely. You feel lonely when your friends can't come over to play. Then you get out your tea set and teddy bear and find something fancy and fun to wear. (an example of the several lackluster descriptions. here it seems rhyming took precedence over explaining that even if you are lonely, there are ways to have fun by yourself)
Hope this is helpful for those who also want to avoid sending negative messages to their little ones. It's a shame, because this could have been a great book.
