I liked this book for two reasons. First the story was really simple, yet funny. I liked how the author portrayed Bendemolena as a child who loved to help her mom and had good intentions even thought everything went wrong. I also like how at the end the mother didn't yell at Bendemolena for turning the house upside down, but instead she put two holes in the pot and asked Bendemolena to hug her for her hard work. This book was very easy and fun to read. This book definitely pushes readers to think what will Bendemolena do next and when will she realize that she can't hear her mother at all. The main idea of this story is that our good intentions sometimes can turn bad but if someone truly appreciate our good intention they will forget the mess that we made and love us for trying to help. I absolutely love reading this story and it would be a great story for first and second graders. ( )
