Pick of the Week: Sometimes You Get What You Want

Sometimes You Get What You Want by Lisa Brown and Meridith Gary (Harper Collins, 2008)

This is a sweet, gentle book that is perfect for those moments when things just don't go your way. A preschool-aged girl goes throughout her day finding that sometimes she gets exactly what she wants and other times she doesn't. This book lends an empathetic ear to the common complaint, "it's not fair!" Brown and Gary's treatment of the theme balances life's little disappointments with life's little triumphs as well. A book all young children can relate to!
