Jen’s Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟
Review: This was a very cute book. And one that I am happy to read to my daughter. She is just as loud or louder than Windy Pants Patrick. Well, if that can be possible. For a four year old, I think it fits right with her. She was amused by the pages and looked at me as if mommy were not telling the truth about her loudness, which believe me I am lol.
It’s one I will probably keep around because it helped her understand a little more about why our indoor voice should be used for several parts of the day, especially while in school. Even my seven year old sat down to hear this story.
It is not one that might become their favorite, but for a parent it’s a good one to have on hand. We can continue to remind them in this sweet, comical way, why loud voices are not always appropriate, but when it’s ok to use it can shine and be center stage.
