This children's picture book is just as good for the parents or adults reading it as it is for the children listening to it. Jilly, a young kangaroo, has Terrible Temper Tantrums when she does not get what she wants. This is typical behaviour for young children until they learn that this does not get them what they want. In this story, when Jilly had a meltdown, her parents lovingly help her through the situation. They do not give in, but explain to her that her behaviour does not help the situation. As she works through her frustrations, she realizes that she can ask her parents for help whenever she is in danger of having another Terrible Temper Tantrum. This is a cute book that realistically protrays situations that any child could find themselves in as well as a realistic way for parents to deal with it. A great book for any family library. The illustrations were very sweet. They showed a loving family displaying emotions that anyone can connect with. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book via Netgalley.
