Love this book!!!
Even the most wonderful people get cranky sometimes!
The children in your class will definitely be able to connect to the frustrations this character is dealing with! We all have these sorts of days when everything just seems to go wrong. This book could lead to wonderful discussions about ways we can deal with our anger and an occasional case of the "crankies"!
