Readers on both sides of the family battlefield will wholeheartedly identify with the oh-so-real experiences of Harriet and her mom. Sometimes accidents just happen, and sometimes yelling just happens. But even when family members make mistakes, they still love each other, as these two prove when they start laughing and cleaning up the big feathery mess after the apologies and hugs. Mem Fox is an internationally known literary consultant and author of many picture books, including Boo to a Goose and Sleepy Bears. Marla Frazee's pictures are exactly right: Harriet's unruly hair and guileless expressions perfectly capture the soul of a 4- or 5-year-old. (Ages 4 to 8) --Emilie Coulter --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

So, I bought this book about a two-ish to three-ish year old who makes a lot of big mistakes. She is not naughty, just little and curious. And the mother, who is trying to do laundry or pay the bills or eat lunch, it patient, and patient, and patient some more. And then Mom LOSES it. Then everyone apoligizes and hugs and laughs at how hard it is to be a human being - whether you are two or 32.
My daughter read this again and again, especially when we were driving each other crazy. If you have a little one, espec. one who is acting out because there is a new brother or sister, this book is for you.
By the way, Harriet does not have a new baby in this story. She is just a wonderfully messy kid.
This book is good to show that everyone had bad days. It shows that even parents have bad days and make mistakes sometimes.
I would recommend this book for read aloud times. There are not may words per page and will keep the attention of kids of all ages. They will be able to relate to Harriet in her day to day activities and how she sometimes just happens to get into trouble with out trying to.
It's about a Mom who "Doesn't like to yell" but... You can guess the rest. The antics of this little girl are so typical, your children will automaticly see themselves and of course YOU don't like to yell ,so, you have to identify with mom.
Give yourself a Moms Day gift and share this book with a little one !

What a delightful way to let a child know that grown-ups get frustrated too. Harriet is a little "toot" and her Mom has to be so patient of course. Read morePublished 8 months ago by kgoss
