What If Everybody Said That? Reviews

    The main character is basically a bully and consistently says rude things. Everyone else in the story (parents, teachers, etc.) always respond with "What if everybody said that?" Then examples are shown of the chaos that would happen if everybody said mean things.

    A picture book with a message. I like the message that people should be kinder to each other, but this book falls a little flat on delivering that message. Great, colorful illustrations.

    I received a digital copy of this book via Amazon

    Not what I thought

    I thought the book would focus more on how we should talk nicely to others. Instead I felt like it only focused on the mean things kids could say to each other. Only the last page shows the girls being nice and talking nicely to others. I am so glad I didn't read this with my kids. I will not be reading this to my kids.

    Standard fare

    While ok, it's not anything special.... "What if Everybody Said That?" Maybe if everybody Said the truth about these " be nicy-nice" propaganda books someone would actually write something worth reading.

    I know many people who buy wrong style (think bikini on 200lb woman or stripes that does wrong look). Friends should be

    Unfortunate beginning

    I completely understand the lesson the author is trying to teach primary grade students. It is a valuable lesson. But the first page does not take into account the way her story could be interpreted by these young students.

    She begins with a girl who is asked if others can play with her responds with,”No boys allowed.” To the question, “What if everybody said that?” Examples are given, “no freckles allowed,” “no climbing for girls,” and “no big kids.”

    Great

    This book was cute my daughter really liked it she would recommend it to all of her classmates and that's exactly what she did

  • Linda

    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.

  • Maggie Mattmiller

    Loved this one even more than the first! Highly recommend for ANY classroom library (even above the recommended age. I read the first one to my middle schoolers and we had a great conversation.) Also would recommend for home libraries!

    Story: 4 stars

    A cute book I think everyone should read to their kids. (Definitely will with my niece). Some kids and parents I see at work sometimes.. makes me think about how my parents would just give us a Look and we'd behave.

    I don't want to say much and spoil it but would definitely recommend. :)
