Melvin has difficulty when things don’t go his way. Fits are kind of his thing. It doesn’t matter what happened, if it wasn’t what Melvin wanted, watch out!
Something that upset Melvin even more was his teacher’s favorite saying, “You get what you get and you don’t throw a fit”. The only good thing that came of that was it was only for school, not for home. What happens when Melvin still throws fits at home???
This will make a good read aloud for my storytime. Some kids will be able to relate to the pictures of Melvin throwing a fit. The illustrations are lovely and it is the right amount of text.
