The Morrisons' first picture book, The Big Box (2000), was heavy and messagy about the scariness of adults. This time the authors do a better job of showing a small child's viewpoint, and Lemaitre's cartoon-style bunny characters in ink and cheerful watercolors make the grown-ups look silly as well as ugly and mean. 3 people found this helpful.

Awesome book!,,,in addition to the obvious ,my students learned a lot about word choice and voice. Toni and Slade Morrison have a way of presenting difficult social concepts to young students with poetic imagery and style.

The is a terrific way for children to express their anger and fears about people who frustrate, control, threaten, tease, or ignore them - all with a sense of humor. I am a child/family psychologist and often provide this journal to my young clients as we work to process negative emotions.

I cannot believe how much negativity people put out. First of all this is supposed to be a cute and humorous book about what is considered mean. Children feel so many people in their lives are mean, because they can't understand everything just yet. This is not a book to teach children the differences between someone who is mean, and someone who is not!! This book validates children's feelings, and as an adult you can take the time to explain that people who tell you what to do are not really mean.

Is this book meant for a toddler with very limited experiences and understanding. OF COURSE NOT!!! So stop reading it to toddlers. This is meant for children who can clearly understand the tongue-in-cheek. That is the target audience. I read this book to my second grade classes every year. Do they truly believe everyone that tells them what to do is mean? NO. But it does help them deal with other mean children. It helps them feel like they can cope when people are really mean to them. I tell them that you will always find mean people around you, how you react is more important. I also believe that they can even reflect and understand that not all the people in their lives are really not mean afterall. However children need to be old enough to be able to make that connection.

This is an excellent book, it flows like poetry, the illustrations are great, and children enjoy it. My students could hear it everyday. It is short and sweet.
I'm sure that all the children of the parents who reviewed this book love it. My child loves this book and I think it is important for children to understand that adults CAN be mean. My 2 years old and I have had discussions on being mean to people based on this book. It is a great lesson and written in a way that kids can relate.

TL;DR Ignore all the people who gave this book 1 star, they clearly are unable to have conversations with their children if they find this book to be so inappropriate.
