I'm not that fond of the term "inner child" since it is so often used with the word "hurt", and then sometimes used to excuse an adult's bad behavior or self-pity. Fortunately, Henry Blackshaw deals very little with negative things in this children's story, but instead tries to explain why adults like to have fun, including in ways that might embarrass their children. He also points out how the older adults gets, the more their inner child can compel them to have fun!

The illustrations are okay,

Great message and lesson to be learned. Respect your inner child! Treat it right because you’ll have your inner child all your life.

A clever book that will encourage bright children to see things from a different perspective. A useful text for discussing in PSHE in KS2.
