Children's Book Review: The Grouchies

The Grouchies

The Grouchies
Written by: Debbie Wagenbach
Illustrated by: Steve Mack
Published by: Magination Press, 2010

A grouchy boy learns how to chase away his grumpy moods. Includes a note to parents.

* This picture book is about a little boy who gets the grouchies. Told in rhyme, the story shows how bad of a day the boy has when he lets the grouchies take over.  At the end of the day his parents tell him everything will be okay and give him strategies for making the grouchies go away.  At the end of the book there's a note to parents with detailed strategies to help their children deal with being in a grumpy mood.  Overall, I think it was an okay read in showing kids the consequences of being grumpy and mean to the people they love. 

Family Rating:  1 thumb up.

  1. This is such a fun site. Discovered you from the Hop. By the way, for some reason, my son loves this book - which was available on the ipad for free at some point. I think he found it funny.
