    Absolutely adorable! My infant son's name is Finn and I love reading this too him. I know it'll be a favorite as he gets older.

    Honestly this book sucks. I bought to help talk about feelings with my two kids, ages 4 and almost 3. Both have pretty regular fits and i was excited to expose them to a book that deals with a situation about feelings and how to handle them. The entire looks just compares components of the fit to natural disasters. "Tears were like tidal waves, Kicks were like earthquakes" etc etc and literally this was the quote from the book referring to the fit "It lasts until it doesn't" and the very end the kid stop being a little jerk and it says "What was he so upset about anyways?" and that is it. Terrible tool if you're trying to expose your kids to a better understanding of their own feelings. The only good thing about it the book were the illustrations, but the book itself really just sucks. I'd look for anything else.

    Sometimes you want a book that is easy (and not annoying) to read aloud (over and over again); maybe it's always! You want it to be fun and the message to be clear. Most books that help address a toddler's difficult moments and upset behavior are uninteresting, long-winded, and go on and on about calming down. The illustrations are from the 70's. It's boring and more about pleasing the parent's need for "teaching a lesson" to the child through the book.I have had this book for 5 years and it is my absolute favorite. Not only are the illustrations action-packed but they are also incredibly creative, colorful, and explosive! Just like the fits our children throw! This started a great discussion about behavior with my son when he was 2 and it still continues today with him and his younger brother who is now 2!The story doesn't conclude with a magical solution of hugging something or taking deep breaths. Often times, children throw fits and just like the weather, the storm blows over without any intervention or warning. Everything dries up and clears. The sun shines again and our little Finn is sweet as can be. As an adult, I sometimes feel like throwing a fit! Scream, cry, and flail for a good moment and then things would feel peaceful again. However, being an adult doesn't allow these kinds of releases. I think this book teaches a great message to the parents, as well, about letting things go and not making everything a "teachable moment". Sometimes it's okay to cry.

    Peaches are really pretty good . . . most of the time. You can sit in your little green chair with a smile on your face, swing your little feet tucked into those oversized yellow boots and just feel that fuzzy peach in your hand. Life is good. BUT on some days you just want to sit in your little green chair, wrap yourself up in your blankie, snuggle it up under your nose and when Mommy offers you that fuzzy peach all sliced up . . . BOOM! That is when little boys named Finn are cranky and "anything could happen." Daddy tries to play ball with him, but even the Jack-in-the-box goes BOING when the thunder and lightning (crash, boom, bang!) erupt over Finn's head. Look out! The little tornado is on the run! Life is not good.Things rock. They roll. Finn slams the door in his nursery shutting out Mommy and Daddy. The little yellow boots go flying when Daddy brings him into the kitchen. The lightning makes everyone grimace. Did you ever hear such noise coming out of such a little boy? He's rocking, rolling and tumbling from here to there. He cries so much that the house begins to flood and Mommy has to stand on a table to escape the rising water, but the puppy dog simply paddles his way through the horror. "He screams. Look out! Avalanche! He kicks. An earthquake shakes the world." Will the little house survive the terrifying ordeal it has to go through when "FINN THROWS A FIT?"This is a hilarious little story that every parent can relate to. I laughed and giggled and recalled a few choice memories with each page. Tantruming toddlers are a fact of life and adorable little Finn with his little blankie and little yellow boots will charm your socks off, even when he's rocking and rolling through the entire house. The lively appealing art work adds just the right touch to this zany, but realistic story. I personally think every grandparent should buy a copy of this and give it to their children in thanks for all the (crash, boom, bang!) memories. Life is good!

    We stumbled upon this book at the library. I had to check it out because my 4 yr old's name is Finn. He is fascinated by the book and it actually stops his own tantrums! When he is throwing a fit I recite some lines from the book and he settles down almost immediately. I can see him thinking about himself causing the events that happen in the book. I will be buying this book for our own library.

    I laughed out loud at the end of this book! Fin is the fictional version of one of my kids. The author captured a toddler's fit in all it's glory. The illustrations are half of what make the book so great. I love them.

    I bought this book for my 2 yr old daughter and I love reading it to her. This book is perfect for almost any young child... or parent! It is a great description of a day in the life of a toddler and how they change their minds and moods at the drop of a hat! I love it and would recommend it... i will be buying more as gifts for other parents and toddlers!

    Finn Throws A Fit is cleverly written and illustrated. A little boy's temper tantrum is likened to thunder, lightning, a flood, an avalanche, an earthquake, and tidal waves. The pictures are incredible works of art. Afterwards, all five of my children chorused, "Read it again mommy!!" Who could want more than that from a children's book?
