I purchased one set of Jamie Lee Curtis' books when my son was little. After he outgrew them, I donated them to the public library. Fast forward to about 5 years later and I was in a job working with children diagnosed as severely emotionally disturbed. These were great kids, but needed validation on the inner storms that they were feeling. I remembers these books and reordered 3 of the ones I had previously had. The kids loved them! They introduced topics in their terms and we were able to expand on the topic in ways that they understood. It was also fun when the kids used the books to show off their newly acquired reading skills.

My granddaughter who is four loves to learn new words. When I say a word that is new to her, she will ask me what it means. A little four year old mind wants to expand her universe.

Jamie Lee Curtis is known for writing exciting new books that leave messages of learning and lessons. In this book she writes in rhyme, and the sequence is delightful. The words she chooses all have relevance and will expand your child's universe. Words like Privacy, Consequence, Cooperate and Patience. Parents/teachers will open up many discussions with the children they read to. Your child will practice the word and want to use it in a sentence. Do not be surprised if your child asks for Privacy in the days after reading this book. Your children will be so proud of the words they have learned and learned to use. The illustrations by Laura Cornell are bright, vivid and colorful! depicting all the words and sequence of events that led up to the use of these words. This will be such a fun time for everyone.

This is one of my favorite Jamie Lee Curtis/ Laura Cornell books, and I enjoy all of them. It is tons of fun, and as always, Cornell's illustrations are spot-on and immensely entertaining. I can look at it even after reading it hundreds of times, and notice something funny I hadn't noticed before. I love the big family idea of it, too, and especially how it ends. "Love is the biggest big word of all..." It makes me cry to read it... Every. Time.

I've bought this for several friends' presents, and I think it's especially great for adoptive families as well. I bought it for my nephew's first birthday, and he is adopted. I hope he grows up knowing how loved he is, thanks, at least a little, to this book.

This is the first JLC book I purchased because, to be honest, the illustrations didn't appeal to me on the books and I wasn't sure the stories would appeal to my 3 1/2 year old. I'm glad I read the description on this one and decided to purchase it.

My daughter loves this book. Since the first night we read it before bed, she's had me read it every evening or before nap for a week straight. She has a hard time pronouncing some of the words, but she tries. She's also getting better with word association because we had fun with it in this book. Whenever I say "disgusting" she always responds with "yucky" or "ick". 8)

I'm now going to take a second look at the books by JLC when we go to the bookstore and am thinking about getting Today I Feel Silly: And Other Moods That Make My Day. I'm very pleased with my purchase and would recommend these books to any parent who has a child that enjoys picture books.

As a developmental psychologist, I see my fair share of children's books. This is really one of the better ones out there. It teaches "big words" (like consequences and privacy) in a way that is super easy for young ones to understand. Considering children are surrounded by adult words all the time, it seems reasonable that they should be explicitly taught what some of the ones directed towards them mean. Put away your fancy flash cards, and pick up this fun, rhyming, well illustrated book. I personally have purchased it for a number of family members and other close-to-the-heart little ones.

Inspirational!!!! ~Okay, I can't recall if THAT word is in Jamie Curtis' book but if it isn't it should be! This book takes words that children have heard adults use (all those long and involved ones that sound so smart!) and explains them in a way little people really can relate to! I teach kindergarten and this book will be a permanent part of my writing curriculum. I'm using it to introduce the children to the idea that there are words they can use besides "good" and "bad" when they write their OWN stories.
Bravo for you, Ms. Curtis! ~and thank you for a book teachers and parents can use that is fun, entertaining, and educational!--->that perfect combination! Fabulous, stupendous, sensational, incredible!

This book is a great vocabulary builder for preschool children. Many of the words, like cooperate and respect, are words adults use and don't realize the children don't have a firm grasp on conceptually. This is a great way to introduce those words and have a conversation about vocabulary. It can also be used as a "word of the day" to increase children's use of higher level vocabulary or to have a conversation about how the words could be used by siblings, teachers, and coaches.
This book is adorable, and my children and I love the artwork! I find my eight year old boys cuddled up with this book when they've gone to bed quite often.
