Bossy Flossy is a very cute, colorful children’s book about a little girl named Flossy, who as the title suggests is very bossy. Her bossy attitude does not make her fun to play with or be around and a couple of times she is bossy to her mom and teacher, and those times she gets in really big trouble. Then one day she meets her match, a bossy little boy by the name of Edward. Now Flossy is the one getting bossed around. This is a fun read with an important lesson that my six year old son enjoyed and he found it rather humorous too. I really like how the author turned around the whole situation in the end.
I recommend Bossy Flossy to moms, teachers, and grandparents of little ones to read to and show them in a simple story that teaches a very important lesson as to why you should not always get your own way. The illustrations are colorful and lively and look like they could just pop right off the page. They actually put in me in the mind of the art style of Charlie and Lola. With all of the children’s books out there, this one really stands out.
I received a copy for an honest review through iRead Book Tours and the opinions are my own.
Paulette Bogan admits she was bossy as a child. She is the author and illustrator ofVirgil & Owen, which was chosen as one of Bank Street Best Children's books of the Year 2016, Virgil & Owen Stick Together, which won a Mom's Choice Award Gold Medal for Picture Books, and Lulu The Big Little Chick, which won a Children's Choice Book Award. She lives in New York City with her husband, three daughters, and two dogs. They ALL think she is STILL bossy. But they've never told her to go to her room!
