Bossy Flossy + Giveaway

Flossy is the bossiest girl around. She's bossy at home and she's bossy in school. She's bossy with her friends, and sometimes she's even bossy to her teacher! Well-meaning Flossy doesn't understand why no one will listen to her.

Then Flossy meets Edward, a boy who is just as bossy as Flossy. But the collision of these two strong-willed forces has a surprising result: they learn how to be a friend.

My Review

I thought this was a cute, quick read. For the younger readers this book is a very easy book to read. There are not any huge words and the story is set with speech bubbles instead if sentences. So I thought it made the story easier to read this way. Plus the comments were short. The illustrations were great...colorful but simple without being over-crowed and distracting. A nice lesson to be taught from this book...it is ok to want to have your voice heard but there is a right way and a wrong way about doing so and that is to not be bossy.
