Books Info:

Almost Terrible Playdate free pdf Ideal for all families who have ever heard (or said!) the words Why can t you both JUST GET ALONG?!, here is the story of two young children with VERY different ideas of what they want to play. What starts with an innocent question ( What do you want to play? ) soon veers hilariously toward chaos, as two children engage in the age-old struggle of princesses, ponies, and ballet vs. dinosaurs, dragons, and race cars. Which child will win? Or will both find a way to play nicely together? In a humorous mock epic battle staged with crayon illustrations of each child s increasingly steadfast and elaborate ideas of what they want to play, Richard Torrey taps into the charged and volatile emotions of childhood, which every parent and child will recognize with a smile. It s a lighthearted and funny way to reflect on the ideas of sharing, cooperation, patience, and generosity. "[A]delightful look at the importance of compromise among friends." - "Kirkus""

About Richard L. Torrey

RICHARD TORREY grew up in a family of boys with two brothers, two half brothers, and two stepbrothers where entire weekends could be occupied by a couple of cardboard boxes, a few crayons, and a lot of imagination. As a brother, and later as a father of two, he learned that compromise is a big part of successful play, as the two children in The Almost Terrible Playdate soon find out. He is the author-illustrator of three Beans Baker books in the Step into Reading line, in addition to numerous other books for children. He lives in Shoreham, New York."
