Like Molly Bang's When Sophie Gets Angry--Really, Really Angry, this book offers families a perfect opportunity to openly discuss emotions and behavior.

Meet Betty, a gorilla. She wants to eat a banana, but . . . try as she might, she can't open it! Poor Betty--she just can't cope, and her frustration quickly becomes a great BIG tantrum. She cries and sniffles, kicks and screams. Luckily, Mr. Toucan is at hand to peel the banana and help Betty calm down. But what will happen when Betty spots another banana?

Both preschoolers and parents will laugh out loud at this simple, utterly hilarious picture book about tantrums.

From the Hardcover edition.

I LOVED Betty Goes Bananas! This is a great book that teaches parents how to deal with babies and toddlers that are going through the temper tantrum stage. Betty learns that sometimes trying to do things yourself doesn't always go as planned. So much fun!

Fun to read as long as you're in an environment where you can be a bit loud and crazy as Betty throws her tantrums. My three year old asked why she was acting like that so it let us talk about his tantrums too (though his first answer to "who else does that?" was his brother! :-) ) Very short story and the moral is not subtle.

This is a funny book that shows how ridiculous a tantrum can be. Betty is not quite getting things the way that she wants and keeps having meltdowns. With my two young children, we were able to talk about how sometimes they do similar things and make light of it. We have even turned upset around since reading the book by bringing up Betty. We have enjoyed it.
