Bossy Flossy appealed to me when I first received the e-mail with the option to review it. That little girl on the cover reminds me so much of me as a kid! And, maybe, just maybe, I was a little bossy too. I was so excited to read Bossy Flossy with Mason and we did just that as soon as it came in the mail.
The story of Bossy Flossy starts off telling about Flossy and just how bossy she was to each of the people she interacted with each day. Then she meets Edward and he's just as bossy as she is. He gives her a run for her money in the bossy category. Has she met her match? I have some positive and negative thoughts about this book.
Let's start with the positive. The illustrations are so fun! They are bright and colorful and they really draw you in to each page. Another pro was that Mason wanted to read the book often. It does also address how adults responded to/punished Flossy when she was bossy.
My negative thought is that I wasn't super pleased with the end of the story. I was hopeful when the story started that it would have a good resolution but I didn't feel like it did. The book ends with Edward and Flossy walking off still bossing each other and that wasn't what I hoped for.
That being said, I didn't think the book was all bad. I just added my own ending that I liked better. :)
