Jilly the Kangaroo is very easily frustrated and has no patience. Any parent raising a small child can relate to this. Jilly doesn't want to wait, doesn't like to compromise, and wants everything her way. Yet, with tons of patience, love, soothing words and cuddles, her Mother and Father manage to calm Jilly the Kangaroo down time after time until Jilly learns to use her words to voice her feelings before her negative emotions burst out. Jilly's Terrible Temper Tantrums is a wonderful text that teaches children how to manage their big emotions in a healthy way for a positive outcome. --Kristine Daniels (Librarian). Netgalley.com
An impressive blend of original and entertaining storytelling with colorfully charming illustrations, Jilly's Terrible Temper Tantrums: And How She Outgrew Them is very highly recommended and certain to be an enduringly popular, 'kid friendly' addition to family, preschool, elementary school, and community library picture book collections. --Midwest Book Review
Five stars! I loved this book! As a preschool teacher, it has everything that I'm looking for in a book to share with my class. The artwork is beautiful and the story has direct applications to children and helping them grow into kind and compassionate adults. I love that the adults in the book explain what is happening and put words to Jilly's feelings, validating them while not giving in to her tantrums. I love that Jilly learns from her past experiences and knows that when she needs support, she can always just ask for it. I absolutely love this book from both a teaching perspective as well as helping parents use more effective discipline strategies. An awesome find and a book I definitely want to get in my classroom! --Mandy Bartmess (teacher) netgalley.com

Jilly is a cute little kangaroo that struggles with something all children experience...wanting to get their way and not understanding when they don't. The story offers various times she has a temper tantrum and how her parents help her to deal with them. The illustrations are adorable, and the story is short enough to hold a child's attention. It is written in such a way that a child will be able to relate to Jilly, while at the same time, a parent can point out why this type of behavior doesn't help the situation. This book is about teaching a child healthy ways to handle their frustrations without disciplining them. I have used this method with my own children and found it to be extremely effective. I would definitely recommend this book for anyone with a child between three to seven years old.
Thank you to the author, Smart Love Press and NetGalley for allowing me the opportunity to read and review this book.
I gave it four stars because it can help children learn how to manage their feelings in healthy ways rather than throwing a tantrum.
It is beautifully illustrated by Jo Gershman and a pleasure to read. It's written for ages three to seven.
I received a complimentary Kindle copy from Smart Love Press, LLC and NetGalley. That did not change my opinion for this review.
