Children’s Book Review: The Day Leo Said I Hate You!

If you’ve ever heard yourself saying “No!” to your kids one too many times you’re certainly not alone! A new picture book for children, The Day Leo Said I Hate You!, by Robie H. Harris addresses this issue in a beautiful way. In the book, little Leo is constantly being told no all day long and then after many “no’s” and no “yes’s'” Leo blurts out to his Mom, “I hate you!”. I’m sure this issue is something every parent will eventually be faced with. Luckily for me, my time has yet to come. ;)

This is a great book to open up discussion of your child’s feelings, and I suggest reading it out loud to your children irregardless of their age. The illustrations by Molly Bang are impressive and really help convey the feelings from the book. My six year old son absolutely loves this book! Ultimately, this is a must-have book for parents everywhere!
