Our narrator takes us along as she explains what she likes - and doesn't - about many of her favorite things. For example, she likes gum, but not in her hair or under her shoe or on her chair.
Colorful illustrations bring to life this catalog of the things kids like and dislike. Although this is meant to be a book you read to your kids, the simple text is great for new readers. The illustrations are perfect for helping them decode the words.
This isn't a story, per se. It is one girl's list of things she likes and doesn't.
The illustrations are what got my daughter interested in this book. She especially liked the images of "gross and messy stuff."
Frankly, the girl was a little too cranky for my taste. Even so, this is a nice book to have around for reading with kids who are picky or put conditions on everything.
This is a picture book that shows kids that even everyday things have limits.
This is a book you could use to talk about choices (like what happens when you don't throw your gum in the trash), consequences, and feelings (ask the reader how he/she feels about what is described). It is also a way to frame the idea of limitations and that you don't have to like "everything all the time."

Read by an 8-year-old girl.
Borrow. The illustrations alone make it worth sharing. It is a book kids can explore on their own, and preschoolers can "read" for themselves.
