Book of The Week: It’s Hard to Be Five

Book Of The Week is a new feature section on Every week our book critic, Audrey DeSimone, shares a favorite book of the week and tells you why she selected it.

This week’s book is It’s Hard to Be Five by Jamie Lee Curtis & Laura Cornell

“A five-year-old boy tells us, through an easy-to-read rhyming beat, about the many trials and tribulations of his age. We learn about how hard it is to control one’s hands and mouth, sit still, keep clean, start a new school and a number of other “hardships”. He turns the corner upon the realization that his body and mind are like a car. With the “license to steer,” he can make many decisions such as use manners, when to walk and run, cross the street and even how to dream.”
