17 Things I’m Not Allowed To Do Anymore by Jenny Offill & Nancy Carpenter

17 Things I'm Not Allowed To Do Anymore“I had an idea to staple my brother’s hair to his pillow. I am not allowed to use the stapler anymore.”

“I had an idea to walk backwards all the way to school. I am not allowed to walk backwards to school anymore.”

“I had an idea to do my George Washington report on beavers instead. I am not allowed to do reports on beavers anymore.”

This is a fabulous story of a curious child whose constant experimentation gets her in trouble. She is obsessed with beavers and taunting her little brother. Her imagination is both naughty and brilliant. The adult expressions of frustration are priceless and the simple text is hilarious. Recommended for ages 7 – 90 yrs, because adults will enjoy this picture book as much as children.
