I Want My Mom! by Tony Ross -- NOT RECOMMENDED
Throughout this story, the spoiled little princess's overeager mother consistently rewards her bratty, whiny, demanding behavior. Their codependent relationship is more than a little disturbing, and not fun or funny as perhaps intended. After listening to this book, my daughter took on a demanding tone of voice to imitate the princess, yelling, "I hate eggs!" and "I want my mom!" Not a good role model for young children. We won't be reading this one again. Pre-K, EL (K-3) -- NOT RECOMMENDED. Reviewed by Caryn.
