Flossy was a very bossy girl. She liked to boss her cat, her younger brother, even her mother and teacher! Every time she encountered some sort of limitation, like being sent to her room at home or given a time out at school, she felt aggrieved, as if people weren't listening to her. She remained oblivious to the way in which her behavior affected others, until a new student named Edward showed up, and proved to be every bit as bossy as she. Would the two become friends or enemies...?

Fortunately, Flossy's fiery interaction with Edward provides just the learning experience she needs in order to reevaluate her own behavior. I liked the fact that Paulette Bogan allows her eponymous heroine to grow, but doesn't reform her completely, that Flossy still has a tendency toward bossiness, even if she learns to control herself a bit better. This subtly communicates to children that they don't have to change fundamental aspects of their character in order to improve their outward demeanor. Recommended to anyone looking for children's stories addressing good manners and consideration for others. ( )

This book is about a little girl that bosses everyone around. She tells everyone from her mother to her cat what to do and how to do it. That is, until a new student comes and challenges her. ( )

Bossy Flossy is a highly opinionated girl who bosses everyone around no matter where she goes. She doesn't see how the way she treats others makes them feel,then Flossy meets Edward, a boy who is just as, if not bossier than she is!!
This book would be great for teaching how it feels when you are the one being bossed around by another. Also, how to be tolerant of others and accepting of others, and compromise.

Flossy is a young girl who bosses everyone around. She tells them what to do and how to do it; she definitely has the best way. She bosses everyone from her cat to her mother. However, when Flossy meets a new student, Edward, she seems to have met her match. Edward begins to boss Flossy around they will figure out on their own how to change for the better.
Bossy Flossy is a fun book that has a great message for kids and adults. Instead of just telling kids that bossing around others is bad, the natural consequences are shown, Flossy doesn’t seem to have many friends and nobody seems to listen to her. I also loved that together Flossy and Edward figured out their flaw and decided to overcome their bossiness through suggestions instead. Flossy has an important message for parents too; she is always saying that no one ever listens to her and this is a gentle reminder to parents that kids challenging behaviors may have an underlying reason. Bright, vibrant and fun illustrations brought Flossy’s world to life and I loved the diversity of her classmates.

This book is an instant favorite with large colourful and bold illustrations that enhance and entice continued reading. Flossy is certainly bossy however when she meets her match the story delivers a subtle message of tolerance and acceptance. A must read for those toddlers who this age group no doubt targets however even my ten year adores this story. An all around good choice for parents and kids.

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review. ( )
