Overview

Bossy Flossy by Paulette Bogan

Flossy is the bossiest girl around. She's bossy at home and she's bossy in school. She's bossy with her friends, and sometimes she's even bossy to her teacher! Well-meaning Flossy doesn't understand why no one will listen to her.

Then Flossy meets Edward, a boy who is just as bossy as Flossy. But the collision of these two strong-willed forces has a surprising result: they learn how to be a friend.

I’ll bet we all have a Bossy Flossy that we know! Flossy is someone who loves to be in charge. If things aren’t done her way, then she is not having it! She’s bossy everywhere! But does she think she’s hurting anyone? Nope! When a new boy arrives at school who is just as bossy as Flossy, she gets a dose of her own medicine! Edward is just as bossy as she is! Maybe this is just what Flossy needs. Bossy Flossy is an adorable book that your little ones will be sure to love. The illustrations make this book even more delightful. I highly recommend Bossy Flossy to all.

A and I read this together and we both truly enjoyed it. A, 3 years old, paid very close attention; she liked the illustrations; and she thought it was a humorous book, especially when Flossy was bossy to her mom and told her mom to go to her room. The book has a valuable lesson in it for children and is a fairly easy read. I would say a first grader could read this with very little trouble. The illustrations are cute and colorful which really held A’s attention and while she may not have completely grasped the lesson of the story, she did understand that Flossy was being bossy and that no one liked it. It was nice to have a little conversation about it afterwards. A said her favorite part of the book was when Flossy yelled, but then Flossy got sent to her room. A held on to the book after we read it and seems to really enjoy it. I think this is a book that she will “read” and have her siblings read to her time and again.

Bossy Flossy is a very cute, colorful children’s book about a little girl named Flossy, who as the title suggests is very bossy. Her bossy attitude does not make her fun to play with or be around and a couple of times she is bossy to her mom and teacher, and those times she gets in really big trouble. Then one day she meets her match, a bossy little boy by the name of Edward. Now Flossy is the one getting bossed around. This is a fun read with an important lesson that my six year old son enjoyed and he found it rather humorous too. I really like how the author turned around the whole situation in the end. I recommend Bossy Flossy to moms, teachers, and grandparents of little ones to read to and show them in a simple story that teaches a very important lesson as to why you should not always get your own way. The illustrations are colorful and lively and look like they could just pop right off the page. They actually put in me in the mind of the art style of Charlie and Lola. With all of the children’s books out there, this one really stands out. I received a copy for an honest review through iRead Book Tours and the opinions are my own.

This book takes a girl's very bad habit, makes it hit home and manages to leave the reader both thoughtful and bearing a smile. Flossy is bossy. Very, very much so. She tells everyone what to do and doesn't let anyone come at her with a word otherwise. Until an amazing thing happens, and she finds herself on the taking end of this horrible trait. But Flossy isn't about to let anyone get the better of her. The moment the first page hits, it's clear--this book isn't only a treat for young listeners to hear, but for the older readers as well. Commands shoot out in speech bubbles, making every word come to life. Flossy's voice is so realistic that it echoes inside the head and lures to imitate. There isn't much text, just enough to make the situations clear and bring Flossy and friends to life. The vocabulary is spot on and the word choice true to life. In other words, it's perfect for kids even three and up. The pictures are simply sweet. They aren't overly perfect (a super plus), are colorful and offer enough details to draw readers and listeners in time and time again. They offer a diversity of characters and actions, and are easy to set in scene Of course, there's a clear message, and it's not hard to guess what it is. Still, it doesn't feel predictable but rather follows along so close to a possible reality that one can't help but smile. Because each of us has met a Flossy just like this...and maybe harbor one inside of us ourselves. Summed up, this book does a fantastic job bringing a horribly irritating habit to life and leading the problem to a solution without ever feeling preachy. It's fun to read, fun to listen to and something kids ages 3+ are sure to like. I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

*This is my daughter's review*. Not to be bossy to anyone because your just gonna get into trouble. This book is about a little girl who is always being bossy. Her name is Flossy. Flossy was bossy to her toys. She was bossy to her cat. Flossy was bossy to her little brother. She was even bossy to her mother. Flossy's mother told her to go to her room, then Flossy told her mother to go to her room. Flossy was even bossy at school, she messed someone's painting and she told kids how to dress in costumes. Flossy was also bossy to lunch lady. One time Flossy teacher told her to go to time out because she was being bad. And then she told her teacher Mrs. Rosado to go time out. One day Flossy met someone that was also bossy. He told everyone want to do just like Flossy did. He was even bossy to Flossy. So one day Flossy got mad at him and they started to argue. They argued through art, lunch and at nap time. So one day Flossy and he went to time out. The moral of the story is not to be bossy to anyone because your just gonna get into trouble. Disclosure: I received a paperback copy of the book from being a member of ireadbooktours in exchange of my honest review.

And what I thought about Bossy Flossy . . . Charming. Colorful. Delightful. At least the moral was. Flossy is a bit bossy. She is bossy to her poor animals. She is bossy to her cat and brother and mother. And her friends at school. And then one day she meets someone who bosses her back. She's met her match and finds a friend. And learns to be a friend. I enjoyed reading this sweet little book. Well it's not little. It's rather big. Perfect for little ones. It's a book for parents to read and discuss with younger children. Older children can read on their own. The illustrations are charming. This is a fun book for everyone! A great book to give to a child.

Flossy is very bossy! She is always telling everyone around her what to do including her cat, her dog, and her MOM! When given time-out in her room, Flossy spends it mumbling about who is "really" bossy - her or her mother. She is also bossy at school to her classmates and teacher. Then she meets a boy who is just as bossy as she. They butt heads with their bossiness til they both end up in time out! In conclusion, they each learn to be a little less bossy and a bit more suggestive of their ideas. Honestly, I am not really sure how I feel about this story. Overall, it was probably a somewhat accurate portrayal of how young children may treat it other, but Flossy irritated me. (smile) My own daughter thought Flossy was way too bossy! However, I did like the colorful pages and illustrations which are sure to capture your child's attention. Flossy is a pretty exact depiction of a very bossy little girl. The part where she bosses her mother and teachers grated on my nerves just a bit. Although, I am sure some children do this, and she does get sent to her room for punishment. The ending helps children understand it is better to learn to make suggestions and express your likes and dislikes kindly, rather than try to tell people what to do or make them do it your way. In general, I think kids will be able to learn something from this book about how to treat others and get along. I received this book courtesy of ireadbooktours in exchange for my honest opinion.

Bossy Flossy By Paulette Bogan Flossy is just plain bossy, there is no other way to describe her. She bosses around her toys, her kitty, her mom (which didn't end well Flossy ended up in TROUBLE), her classmates, and her teacher (another not so good idea on Flossy's part). It seems as if Flossy is on a path to stardom as the world's bossiest person. But one day everything changes - she meets Edward and the title for bossiest kid in the world is up for grabs! But sometimes the best way to end bossiness is to experience for yourself and be on the receiving end of all the pushiness. This is a cute book that is perfect for teaching an important lesson about being a person other people enjoy being around. Friendship is a give-and-take type relationship and no one like always being told you have to do it this way. Suggestions are welcomed but takeovers aren't. This book is also a great way to explain to siblings that just because something works for them this won't necessarily work for bother or sister. The reader could also discuss the book with their child asking how they would feel if Flossy came in and took over what they were working on or playing at. This is a perfect learning resource at home, school, or daycare situation. I was provided a copy of this book through iRead Book Tours in exchange for my honest review.

Flossy is a bossy girl, no matter where she goes or who she is with. I think that most children can relate to her, whether they are bossy themselves or have someone who is bossy towards them. This darling story uses words, as well as wonderful illustrations to teach children an important lesson about friendship and the give and take of relationships. The illustrations are colorful and expressive and they easily captured my attention. My daughter is getting a little old for picture books (at the age of 10), but she sat down and read this one and it engaged her as well. She thought it was a fun story with a little humor and could easily understand the message. I love how the pages have those colorful dialog bubbles, as it's fun to image different voices saying each one. Flossy is a slightly messy, yet flamboyant girl and the pictures depict that very well. This is a very enjoyable story, especially for preschool aged children, as they can probably see a piece of themselves within the pages. *I received a copy from iReads Book Tours in exchange for an honest review*

I think most little girls (and boys) are at one point just a little bit too Bossy! I’ve written about my Grand Daughter many times.Especially when I read a book that reminds me of her. Well here’s another one. Bossy Flossy is all about a little girl that likes to have things her own way.She seems to like bossing people (and even her cat) around. She sees nothing wrong with that. If you happen to know a child like this ,you know the one with the “attitude” this is the book for them. There is a nice little learning lesson here.Just the type of Life lesson I like to see in a children’s book. Nobody likes to get bossed around but to the one doing the “bossing” it doesn’t seem so bad. But when things get turned around? well that’s a little different isn’t it. This is a great book not only for parents but I think it would be perfect for a teacher of young children to read in school.One more good point is it’s a nice big Hardcover. I did receive this book as part of a book tour for an honest review.
