    2. The illustrations of this book was very cute and I think the author had a good idea behind it But I guess because I ve never really believed in not disciplining your child when they do something wrong Allow them to be a child but if they do something wrong tell them not just pat them on the head and say it s okay until it builds up like it did in this book and you end up yelling at them Then they don t understand why that was wrong but the other stuff wasn t.

    7. I don t know, it kind of leaves me cold Kid likes it, but I think it s a bit earnest or dull or something Even the illustration style.


    8.

    9. Harriet is a pesky child and accidentally makes messes all day long With each disaster her mother gets angrier and angrier She doesn t like to yell, but when Harriet rips a pillow open and feathers go flying, mom loses it They both calm down, hug, look around and realize how silly the massive feather mess is As a parent s I totally relate to this book I try and try and try to be calm when he makes a mess or does something naughty And sometimes I get to the point where I ve had it But just like t [...]


    10. I remember this book from when I was a kid, and would recommend it for ages 4 7 My mom would read it with plenty of emphasis to my sister and I This book depicts a little girl who makes messes and gets into trouble, and her mother has an incredible amount of patience with her, but only to a certain point This was my mom She never raised her voice at us very often, but on the rare occasion that she did, we always knew we had gotten on her last nerve It is a relatable story for children who just c [...]


    11. I picked this up from a book sale at a school where I used to teach because I recognized the author s name from Wilfred Gordon McDonald Partridge, which I think I read in the Writing Project This was a simple story about a little girl being a little girl and the mom finally losing her patience but then apologizing Just like little kids sometimes don t mean to make messes, we also don t mean to lose our patience with them.


    12. I found this story of an accident prone little girl and her frazzled mother to be so, so relatable and endearing The detailed illustrations nicely add to the story and I especially like how Harriet s sidekick a scruffy little dog appears on every page.


    13. A sweet story about how parents can get angry and yell, but apologize afterwards Love the Marla Frazee illustrations





    14. This book is fun but in a subtle way It is about a girl named Harriet Harris and how she prone to making messes She drops jam on her jeans pulls the table cloth off the table, but her mother never yells That was until while she was supposed to be napping she ripped a pillow and her mom began to yell Harriet always replied with I m sorry to her mother when she didn t yell, but this time she was really really sorry After her mother realized that she had been yelling she apologized as well and they [...]

    17. I got this book because sometimes I yell and it really hurts Logan s feelings In the book, Harriet is constantly on the move, making messes and destroying things She doesn t mean to, but it just happens She s always sorry afterward Her mother doesn t like to yell, so she tries to keep her cool Finally, when Harriet tears a feather pillow open and gets feathers everywhere, her mom loses her temper and yells Right afterward she apologizes and reconnects with Harriet Just like Harriet, sometimes sh [...]


    18. This is a sweet tale about a parent trying to be patient and loving with a very active, pesky and somewhat mischievous child I love that the parent is able to lose her cool and apologize I certainly could empathize with her While I would always want to be patient and loving with our girls, I cannot say that I speak to them in loving, rhyming couplets every time they do something that frustrates me The narrative is somewhat humorous, although I had to admit that I cringed at Harriet s antics myse [...]


    19. This is a great story about a troublesome child who does not mean to be bad, it just happens She creates simple accidents that even adults do sometimes such as spilling orange juice and getting their clothes dirty Her mom is usually calm about the situation, until there is one accident where she is no longer calm Mom gets mad and Harriet gets upset, both apologize though and work it out in order to work together to clean up Harriet s mess This is a great story with the message that accidents hap [...]


    20. Does almost every family have a child like Harriet Curly haired Harriet does everything wrong When she gets up from the table the tablecloth comes with her, when she eats half the food ends up on the floor or on the dog, when she takes a nap the pillow is ripped open but that was NOT her fault, really it wasn t But h er mother didn t like to yell, so instead she said, Harriet my darling child Harriet, you ll drive me wild Over and over Until she does.As usual, Mem Fox tells a simple but lively s [...]


    21. I m not sure Part of me feels really glad this was written It s about a parent getting too angry at their child It s indubitably great that the topic is dealt with in a book But it makes a frightening book So I m not sure about it or how to rate it So I am interim rating it 3 stars in the middle Signifying uncertainty either way Deep down I think I lean toward four or five stars Because it does raise the issue But is that enough Would a child dealing with a parent s getting too angry be comforte [...]


    22. Harriet s mother tries to keep her temper after each of Harriet s accidents About five accidents in one day proves a little too much for both mom and daughter, but they work things out.Adults will find Harriet s string of staining accidents enough to drive anyone crazy It s nice to see Mom and daughter work things out after they both mess up a little I personally think Mom should hide anything stain inducing from this accident prone child A good book to use to talk with kids about being thoughtf [...]


    23. Harriet is like most young children, she makes a lot of mistakes and messes She apologises each time she is clumsy while her mother s patience is wearing thin Eventually her mother loses her patience and yells, which provides a scenario for her mother to apologise.I think this book is relatable for both sides of the relationship.My 3 year old daughter loved this book and would ask me to read it to her every night In the end she could recite the book word for word, that s how much we read it I ev [...]
