With three starred reviews, this highly-acclaimed picture book from the beloved talents of Robie Harris and Molly Bang, The Day Leo Said I Hate You! is now available in paperback!
"No More NO's! I HATE No! And actually, right now--I HATE YOU!"
Uh-oh...those three words just popped out before Leo could stop them!
What's Mommy going to do now? Has Leo said words he shouldn't have said? How can those words make someone else feel? Will Mommy still love him?
In a reassuring manner, Robie H. Harris and Molly Bang portray what happens when a little boy feels SO frustrated and SO mad at a parent who has said NO all day long. Together, Harris and Bang delicately navigate not only the momentary angry feelings and outbursts of young children, but also the most profound bonds between a parent and a child.
