Jilly’s Terrible Temper Tantrums: And How She Outgrew Them
Jilly’s Terrible Temper Tantrums and How She Outgrew Them is a story about a very spoiled kangaroo girl. She is always throwing a tantrum when she doesn’t get her way. She yells and jumps and cries each time. Her mom and dad help her by making sure she’s okay. They talk to her and help to give her choices. I don’t think that Jilly learned how to ask her mom and dad for a hug or for help instead of yelling and being mean. This book makes me feel uncomfortable because Jilly is always throwing a fit. The pictures are colorful and help tell the story of Jilly. There are even some word bubbles when the kangaroos talk. The book is happy at the end when Jilly learns a little how to not throw a fit. This wasn’t my favorite book, but maybe it would help some moms and dads if their kids had temper tantrums.
