What If Everybody Said That? Reviews
As the school year is about to begin here, this book is an excellent reminder of how we should treat others and how we want to be treated. No one likes to be left out of fun activities and this book offers all kinds of examples of how our words can hurt others. Whether we tell someone they can’t play with us because they are too big, or they look funny with their new glasses, or their drawing is bad we have hurt them…even if it that wasn’t the intention. Children especially can be too literal at ...more
A cute story with an important message for everyone, not just children. Unfiltered comments can hurt, and we should all be considering the impact of what we say.
Ellen Javernick's What If Everybody Said That? is a timely and colorful picture book with a meaningful message about kindness. Through simple, yet thought provoking text and relatable scenarios, this picture book explores topics such as selfishness, bullying, and thoughtless behavior in age appropriate ways that don't simply tell little readers that these things are bad, but encourages readers to think about why these things are bad and how they can respond to, react to, and change these rude be ...more
Cute illustrations. However, I think it would have benefited if it stuck more to its description "What if everyone chose to be kind?" It all dwelt on what happened if no one was kind right up until the last page when it had one kind example... Hmm.
What really makes me scratch my head is that while I see this is trying to have some good message for kids, I honestly would have found this a pretty boring book when I was a kid into picture books. Granted, that wasn't a long period, but still.
This is a great book for teaching children the importance of language and behavior. Manners and politeness go a long way and hurtful words can make a big impact. Definitely a book you should read with your child as they begin school and socialize more with other children.
Right from the start, you can't help but be drawn in. I mean, the title alone would do it with all the ponderings it brings to mind, but combine that with the cover, you just know something is about to go down, and you want to be a part of it...or perhaps not. You see, our little leading lady is being anything but angelic. Now don't get me wrong, people should be free to be themselves, but that goes for EVERYONE, and ridiculing, picking on, or name calling is for the birds...well, okay, not even ...more
Teaching moment lost
I was disappointed with this book. It showed mostly examples of fairly mean, bullying behavior by the main character. There was ample opportunity to provide understanding for the main character of how bullying feels once they are on the receiving end. Unfortunately, there were none. Bullies rarely have epiphanies and just apologize, especially at this age. The opportunity to teach an important lesson that has been plaguing our society for generations was lost.
