What's Wrong, Little Pookie? by Sandra Boynton

This is a fantastic little book that will appeal to toddlers or any parent who has faced a crying child and can't figure out why he or she is crying! Little Pookie is in a funky mood and no matter what Mama asks him, he won't tell her what's wrong, so she starts to ask yes/no questions. "Are you cold?", "Did you fall?", "Are you hungry?" All of which Pookie answers with a resounding "No". As Mama continues to question Pookie her questions become sillier and sillier and eventually help him get unstuck and willing to talk: "Did a very large hippo try to borrow your shoes?"; "Are there five lazy frogs in your bed for a snooze?" By the time you reach the end of the book Pookie can't remember why he was upset in the first place. It's a great little book that help children learn a bit more about emotional intelligence!
