- Fi Star-Stone, Parenting expert and Author

'This is a lovely book which tells the story of how one mum loses her temper, then attempts to put it right, by admitting she got it wrong and saying sorry. This book can help young children realise that adults may shout, but they can also apologise, and help children understand how much they're loved.'
