5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, 23 Jun 2011
This review is from: I Was Only Trying to Help (Hardcover)
I was bought this book for my 6th birthday (the year it was published) because its title was my constant catchphrase. I was forever finding that the ways in which I tried to help were not ones of which my parents approved. The author writes well and genuinely understands how a child thinks. It is the story of Kate (aged 6) and her brother Simon (3). One particular day, everything seems to go wrong and her cat, Puzzle, is her only comfort. But she comes to realise that her parents still love her very much and that, although she will make mistakes, she will learn from them. The book's other great strength is that it also shows the adults learning that Kate genuinely was trying hard and didn't intend to cause trouble. I recommend this book to all parents of young children. My 3 year-old daughter often asks for it to be read and will probably enjoy reading it for herself once she is able. The illustrations are also delightful. Wonderful.
