Reviewed by Joy Hannabass for Readers' Favorite

Erin does something around her family that is very bad. She screams. She screams all of the time. She screams at her mom, her dad, her sisters, and she screams whenever she wants to ask them something. Even when she wants something, she doesn’t ask, she screams. Can you think of a reason Erin has to always scream? Is screaming a nice thing to do around your family or around anyone? You are right. No, it is not acceptable to scream unless something is really wrong. No one wants to be like Erin and have your family upset at you because you scream so much.

First of all, the cover of this little book is adorable and very eye-catching. I love Erin’s expression; the way she appears on the front cover would make any child want to read the book. And the story is just what any young child needs to have read to them. Monette Pangan does an outstanding job of teaching children about this awful wilful act of screaming. Not only does she teach children that it is not necessary to scream, but she teaches adults the importance of finding out why children are acting unpleasantly and correcting the problem. As it turned out, Erin had a good reason to scream, but neither Erin nor her family did the right thing because Erin kept screaming and her family started ignoring her. I like that Ms. Pangan brought out the importance of parents and children communicating together when problems arise. I highly recommend this adorable little book. You and your child will learn valuable lessons, and you will both love the illustrations throughout this precious book.
