What about Me?

Twelve Ways to Get Your Parents' Attention Without Hitting Your Sister

By Eileen Kennedy-Moore; Mits Katayama (Illustrator)

Parenting Press, Hardcover, 9781884734861, 32pp.

Publication Date: November 1, 2005

Kids compete for their parents' attention--with each other, with the phone, with work. You name it, they vie for attention with it. Full of bright watercolors by Mits Katayama, this new 32-page book shows children how being pleasant and positive--even helpful--is the best way to get noticed. Recommended by pediatricians, parents and even Nanny 911! An excellent big sister or big brother gift.

Praise For What about Me?
I loved this book as it teaches parents and children alike that communication is the key to a healthy relationship.

--Nanny Deb from Nanny 911

A charming, rhyming invitation to children to consider new ways to become helpful members of the family team.

--Adele Faber & Elaine Mazlish, authors of How To Talk So Kids Will Listen

A pure joy--and also quite instructional without seeming to be so.

--Edward Hallowell, MD, author of Delivered from Distraction

This book will help a child learn empathy. We're happy to recommend it.

--Dr. William and Martha Sears, co-authors of The Discipline Book
