There are three pages I have trouble with:
-The page with the story reader at the library is confusing for her, because the story readers at our library encourage interactivity. I turn it into a lesson on interrupting, rather than just talking during storytime, as it is presented.
-The page about running onto the field AFTER a football game shows a what-if-everybody running onto the field DURING a football game. I crossed out "after" and wrote in "during".
-The page on snowball fights paints all snowball fights as bad. But snowball fights were a cherished part of my childhood. I turn it into a lesson on consent. "I threw just one snowball at Sammy without asking him." Maybe once she is in school, I will go with the inappropriateness of snowball fights at school.

"During story time I had something important to say. I just couldn't wait till the end of the story. The librarian put her finger to her lips and said, "What if everybody did that?" Then it shows a picture of kids erupting in chaos and chatter. The last example is a positive one. I was happy they ended on a good note and what a great way to start off your lesson and discussion. "When I came home I gave my mom a hug. What if everybody did that?"
If you need a new resource to introduce routines, procedures, and school standards this is such a great reinforcer!
Unfortunately this book isn't written to convey that thought. Instead of a series of reflections on the problems it was a cycle of adults yelling at kids for actions that sometimes weren't actually all that bad. It seemed like a missed opportunity really.
Asked for a refund.
In conclusion, I like the book. The kids learned so much. BUT it ended up being too negative of a message and throwing hugs in at the end just could not overcome that negativeness.
