Go to Your Room
By Marc Brown
preschooler can't identify with being placed on a timeout?
D.W is building a castle of blocks when her
curious baby sister grabs some blocks. Four year old D.W. gets very upset
and threatens to pinch Baby Kate. D.W.'s mother sends her to her room for
Ten minutes seems like an eternity for
someone D.W.'s age. She comes up with excuses to leave her room but is sent
back to her room to finish out her punishment. D.W.'s imagination gets the
best of her and she thinks of herself as a servant girl for her family.
Thoughts of selling Baby Kate at a yard sale cross her mind.
She thinks about Grandma Thora and what she would
do to her parents if she knew how unfairly D.W. is being treated. D.W. packs
her suitcase with toys and is going to run away just as the Time Out
expires. When Mrs. Read asks D.W. to watch Baby Kate, she realizes that Kate
isn't so bad. In fact, its fun playing with her. Five minutes of playtime go
by so fast while ten minutes of punishment seems like forever.
D.W., Go to your Room is a funny adventure
with its humor, warm and cozy feeling and normal childhood experiences
