My Big Shouting Day

Whatever our age, we all have them – days that start off badly and stubbornly refuse to get any better; days when everything is just somehow… wrong. For small children, living very much in the moment, the negative emotions involved can be particularly disorientating – after all, how are they to know whether or not the world will ever set itself right again? In this funny and endearing book, Bella is cross and shouty from the moment she wakes up until she finally gives in to exhaustion and a bedtime story. One tantrum follows another – but ultimately, two profoundly reassuring messages come through: first, that all days, no matter how grim, come to an end with the promise of a fresh start tomorrow and secondly, that the people who love us continue to do so even when we’re making ourselves as unpleasant as possible.
