You Get What You Get (and you don’t throw a fit)

   New to our collection is You Get What You Get by Julie Gassman, the story of a little squirrel, Melvin,  who doesn’t handle disappointment very well.  A lot of life’s little bumps set him off on a tantrum until he starts school and has to obey his teacher’s rule:  you get what you get and you don’t throw a fit.  Melvin learns to temper his outbursts at school, but his logic doesn’t extend to home, in typical primary school fashion.  Will Melvin be able to connect his learning from school to home?  With a little help from his sister the squirrel family might just get some peace and quiet.  This little story will delight your students and reinforce good behavior, a fabulous combination.

Happy Reading, Kathy
