    Young children’s books are tales of wisdom and whimsy. They can evoke strong emotions and will often use beautiful imagery, rhymes, and a straight-forward format to tell their tale. These features are all used excellently in Peter Panda Melts Down!

    Peter Panda is a young lad who spends his days with Mama Panda, running errands, visiting the library, and playing in the park. For a panda of three years old, life seems pretty good. But, Peter is quite a headstrong panda who appears to have never outgrown those ‘terrible twos’. 

    Mama Panda is a hard-working and loving mother who faces the daily gauntlet of parenthood with her fussy Peter in tow. She tries her hardest to raise Peter with kindness and good values in his heart, even when he’d rather throw another strop in the supermarket.

    Artie’s work is simply charming. Peter Panda Melts Down! is a story that any young child will love to have read to them. It features an important message for them about loving our parents and learning to listen. Children, even young ones around two and three years old, will learn to appreciate their own ‘Mama Pandas’ all the more.

    For parents, at the end of a long day, Peter Panda Melts Down! is a refreshing and honest look at parenthood that will no doubt have them smiling at their own children’s behavior (yes, including those temper-tantrums!). It reminds us all that being a parent is a full-time job, with plenty of overtime, and often a really cranky ‘boss’. However, it’s also extremely rewarding and this story teaches us all to be a little more patient with those little ones.

    For parents, for young children, or for picture book aficionados, Peter Panda Melts Down! will make a welcome addition to your collection.

    Peter Panda is a good little cub but he gets VERY upset when things don’t go his way, or if he looses something, or if he has to do something he doesn’t want to do, or if… well, you get the idea. Mama Panda is very patient, but even the best Mama’s sometimes have enough!

    Why I liked this book – This is a very cute book that I think young kids will really enjoy. Peter Panda is very cute, and understandable. Mr. Bennett’s story really shows a toddler melt down very well! I think a lot of parents will relate to this book. I think the illustrator really captures the emotions on the Panda family.

    I also like the twist at the end of the story. I actually laughed out loud! I also like that Mama Panda throws a tantrum. That was hysterical. My mom told me that once I put her on time out when I was a toddler because she got frustrated and yelled. ;)

    I think kids and parents will love this book.
    *NOTE* I got an ARC copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
