Format: Paperback
This book was a frequent bedtime reading for me as a kid, and it was one of my mother's favorites, too. As a middle child in a loving, but often frazzled family, I easily understood and sympathized with the quarrels of this family. Zolotow paints a picture of a very loving and typical family that makes all of us who bicker from time to time realize how normal we are. More importantly, it reminds everyone that their grumpiness toward others only spurs on more bad feelings, but, thankfully, a little kindness goes a long way, too.

Very cute story about how someone can be having a bad day and how one's negative attitude can be "contageous," but so can a positive one. Also love that alothough you may have said or done something not nice, it shows that you can always appologize and make things right again. My 7-year old boy especially enjoys this story.

I bought this book for all my employees as a Christmas present this year. This is probably the most important book anyone could ever read. It is a life lesson that shows how what a person does affects everyone around them.

This is a wonderful book for all ages. It is an excellent tool for teaching students that all actions are far reaching and effect much more than we ever realize.

I have found The Quarreling Book to be a most effective story for 2nd and 3rd graders. To me, this book is not so much about quarreling, but more about emotions and feelings. This book is delightfully written by well-known children's author, Charlotte Zolotow with illustrations by Arnold Lobel. It really holds children's attention and helps them understand how we all "pass on" our feelings, for good or ill, to the people around us. In the classroom, I follow up with a discussion of specific strategies for emotionally healthy ways to deal with bad feelings. I would highly recommend this book to teachers and parents alike.

Every family that has children and dogs running around should get this book. It is especially helpful on Mondays, when Moms or Dads or children may not be in the best mood trying to start the week. A reading of the Quarreling Book will open the door to a better day ...
