Louise has a problem. She has the tendency to . . . how to put it? Gnaw? Chomp? Bite! . . . on everything and everybody. She promises Mother that she won’t do it again, but sometimes Louise just can’t help herself. “OOOOooooowww!” No biting, louise captures the humor—and the pain—of a common stage for preschoolers.
While it may be a comforting thought to parents (and while it is in some sense a stage), by simpling labeling biting (and then burping) a stage rather than insisting that children have some control over their behavior this book missed the mark for me.
