It's hard to be five.
Just yelled at my brother.
My mind says do one thing.
My mouth says another.
It's fun to be five!
Big changes are here!
My body's my car,
and I'm licensed to steer.
Learning not to hit? Having to wait your turn? Sitting still? It's definitely hard to be five. But Jamie Lee Curtis's encouraging text and Laura Cornell's playful illustrations make the struggles of self-control a little bit easier and a lot more fun!
This is the sixth inspired book from the #1 New York Times best-selling team of Today I Feel Silly: & Other Moods That Make My Day and I'm Gonna Like Me: Letting Off a Little Self Esteem.
