Big or small, sometimes we ALL need to feel in charge – a second hilarious and helpful book on child emotions, from the bestselling creators of Sometimes I am FURIOUS
Sometimes I Just WON'T is a hilarious and helpful book about the ever-changing moods of small children, from top picture book pairing, Timothy Knapman and Joe Berger.
Being a toddler is an emotional rollercoaster. Some days you want to put your coat on, you don’t mind sharing and you can't wait to have your bath. There are days when you're the first to slide down the biggest slide, or join in with everyone else. But some days, you just WON'T! And sometimes that’s OK. But, with a little kindness and encouragement, you might find that something you don’t want to do can become something you love to do!
A comic look at child autonomy and how to navigate strong emotions. An essential read for all young children – and their adults because, big or small, sometimes we ALL need to feel in charge. With bouncing rhythmic text and lively, graphic illustrations this is a brilliant follow up to Sometimes I am Furious, a Sunday Times Book of the Year 2021!
