I'll Tell You Why ... I Can't Wear Those Clothes
Date of Review:31/3/12
My mom wrote this book about me (I am 10 years old now). When I was 4 years old she did not understand why I was crying and was upset, and sometimes she would get mad at me because she did not understand why I was crying. My mom even took me to the doctor but not even the doctor knew what was wrong. One night I said to her "Mommy you have to help me," so she searched it up on the Internet, and she found out that I was not faking and that I needed help. She was telling everybody that I was not just trying to be annoying or difficult. We couldn't find an easy book to explain it to them. So that is why she wrote this book, but not only for me but for all the kids whose parents don't understand them. We did a lot of things to help me, and now things don't really bother me that much any more.
