When sophie get angry by Molly Bang

Standard

The terrible twos are here…and from what I am seeing around me, they evolve into the fearsome fours and fives…so it is going to be a long road ahead. Right now we are dealing with major tantrums, whines and other assertions of independence (and therefore defiance of  lot of expected behavior).

Figured it was probably a good time to get hold of Molly Bang’s book, When Sophie gets angry.

The book is something I related to right away… Sophie’s tantrums sound a lot like what I see everyday. Crying, screaming, throwing stuff..mg boys do that quite well. The boys were also amused with Sophie and recognized some of her behavior as similar to theirs. I also drew the parallel the last few times the boys had their tantrums ( said because I shut the bathroom door instead of him And nish because his brother opened the box of puzzles and picked one that he wanted).

The illustrations and especially the use of colors is very clever..so red backgrounds and zooming in on Sophie when she is angry and shades of blue as she calms down.

Definitely a book I have enjoyed reading…and I draw some comfort in the fact that these tantrums are fairly common and not just something that only I seem to be dealing with.

Mom - a word that defines me... I smell of oats, johnson's and home baked cookies I am pink, purple, green and orange and so is the floor my kids color on. Flour on my clothes and a brush in my pocket, my glasses bent out of shape and smudged with tiny fingerprints. I can't remember the date but i know almost 40 pictures books by heart. I wake up humming 'wheels on the bus'and i talk with my fingers and eyes and mouth. My bag carries band aids, napkins, wipes, crayons, papers, candy and sometimes my wallet. I know all the parks and very few of the restaurants in my neighborhood. Most of my shopping is diapers, books and paints My phd certificate lies in a roll, the frame now contains an abstract work of art by two year olds and i am prouder of that piece of paper. mom - a word that defines me!
