D.W. pinches her little sister and stole her toy so got sent to her room for 10 minutes for being mean. Within that time D.W. began to feel bad for herself and thinking her family is out to get her. She sits in her room and makes the worst of it instead of thinking about what she did and why she is in trouble. She was also given an extra list of chores. D.W., after her punishment began having fun playing with her baby sister and sharing with her. She was hesitant at first but then she began to ...more

D.W. Go to Your Room is a great book and can be used to teach young children how to share and get along with their siblings and friends. The storyline involves D.W. pinching her little sister and stealing a toy from her. She gets caught by her mother and has to go to her room and do extra chores. While she is very upset about her punishment in the beginning, in the end she is playing nicely and sharing with her little sister. This book does a great job of showing how it is much more fun to get ...more

D.W. is always getting herself in so much trouble and never understands why. I like this book because it can teach kids that just because they dont think they did anything wrong dosent mean that they are innocent. It teaches students to own up for making a mistake and moving on and not blaming it on other people. I would suggest reading this book to a young class that has had trouble sharing and understanding that they actually did do something wrong.

This is a great story of a bossy older sibling and a younger sibling who just wants to help. The way DW reacted was so typical of what I've seen with my oldest child when his younger brother wants to play. My child also stomps off to his room and threatens to run away but in the end everything always works out.

I was glad to read this one to my grandchildren. Little ones need to learn that if you are not being nice to your siblings (or others) that there will be a punishment. On the other hand it also shows that parents and siblings still love them despite their misbehavings.

Great book to help students reflect on the choices that they make instead of blaming others. I enjoyed reading this story to my students and hearing about times when they got into trouble and what their consequences were.

D.W. just gets so frustrated with her family. She doesn't see why she should be punished for Baby Kate's actions. This is a nice book...especially for sisters who sometimes can't stand each other but love each other anyway. ;)

Can't believe there's such a low average rating. Hurts my feelings a little. I thought this one was great, and genuinely hilarious. D.W. does it again.
