About this deal

But it isn't until the last page that Bella's mother makes any attempt to help her work through her feelings, while at the same time being implausibly patient. WINNER OF THE ROALD DAHL FUNNY PRIZE 2012″Today I woke up and Bob was crawling around MY ROOM, licking MY JEWELLERY, so I shouted GET OUT OF MY ROOM!

I work part time in a local primary school as a Teaching Assistant where I whisper stuff like 'I never had to know about fronted adverbials' to small children.

Some of the best children's literature has been written about characters who are less than perfectly behaved.

It has become iconic for us, and so helpful for helping toddlers/pre-schoolers and those that encounter them, understand that we all have ‘big shouting days’ sometimes, and that’s ok. And it’s a lovely way to unwind after a shouty day of your own, perfect for talking about feelings and how we all have off days. My daughters love it - little do they know that they can be equally as ridiculous, unreasonable and shouty on occasion! i think its a great book i like the illustrations and i like the theme, its funny and cute and every parent will relate to a day of lots of shouting!This book is so brilliantly observed that it should be compulsory reading for all mothers who think they might have stopped seeing the funny side of an impossibly opinionated toddler . Displaying the full force of toddler hormones, she refuses to eat her breakfast egg, throws off her shoes, yells in the supermarket, and lies down in the pavement, refusing to move.

Today I woke up and Bob was crawling around MY ROOM, licking MY JEWELLERY, so I shouted GET OUT OF MY ROOM! The message seems to be that we all have our off days, but that's OK, because tomorrow it will all be better.

Once her own children had started school, Rebecca began an MA in Children's Book Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art and had her first picture books commissioned at the end of the course. It's a great way to open up dialog about what to do with their big emotions and how to handle it and that's especially more important now than ever. and that was the start of MY BIG SHOUTING DAY…”Bella is having one of those days – her biscuit is broken, she has a hurting foot and ballet is TOOOO itchy for words.

My children don't empathise with Bella not because they haven't had tantrums – believe me, they have – but because it's all just a little too realistic, without any humour thrown in for good measure.We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others.
