Bossy Flossy written and illustrated by Paulette Bogan {Blog Tour Review and Giveaway}

Bossy Flossy written and illustrated by Paulette Bogan
Book Description:

Flossy is the bossiest girl around. She's bossy at home and she's bossy in school. She's bossy to her friends and she's bossy to her cat. Sometimes she's even bossy to her teacher! Flossy doesn't understand why no one will listen to her. One day, Flossy meets Edward, a boy who may be just as bossy as she is. Has Flossy finally met her match?


My Review: 5 Stars

Flossy is a bossy girl, no matter where she goes or who she is with. I think that most children can relate to her, whether they are bossy themselves or have someone who is bossy towards them. This darling story uses words, as well as wonderful illustrations to teach children an important lesson about friendship and the give and take of relationships.
The illustrations are colorful and expressive and they easily captured my attention. My daughter is getting a little old for picture books (at the age of 10), but she sat down and read this one and it engaged her as well. She thought it was a fun story with a little humor and could easily understand the message.
I love how the pages have those colorful dialog bubbles, as it's fun to image different voices saying each one. Flossy is a slightly messy, yet flamboyant girl and the pictures depict that very well. This is a very enjoyable story, especially for preschool aged children, as they can probably see a piece of themselves within the pages.
